2. Students who have documented temporary injuries.

3. Students with documented disabilities or medical conditions who are seeking relief from the requirements of Greek meal plans.

Note: the SDRC also serves students at USC satellite campuses and graduate students, inluding  those at the Law School and Medical School.

Remember: Although students may have similar diagnoses, their behaviors, needs, and experiences will be unique and will need individualized consideration. Modifications/Accomodations are determined on a case-by-case basis.
