Temporary Disability Support Services

Daytime Cart Service for Temporary Ambulatory Disabilities

The purpose of this cart service is to provide transportation for students with temporary disabilities that significantly limit mobility. This is a limited and free service only for Scripps  students.

Process for Requesting Services

  • To receive transportation services for a temporary disability, the student must submit documentation to the Dean of Students Office indicating the type of disability, severity, limitations, prognosis, and estimated duration of the disabling condition.
  • The student must provide a class schedule as part of the request for temporary transportation services and complete the Transportation Services for Temporary Disabilities Form.
  • The student must set up an appointment to meet with the Assistant Dean of Students/Director of Academic Support services to discuss transportation needs and come up with a plan.

Transportation is only provided to and from classes at other Claremont Colleges.  Transportation is not provided within the Scripps campus.  Additionally, transportation is not provided outside of the Claremont Colleges (i.e. off-campus housing, The Village, off campus appointments).

Transportation service is available Monday through Friday beginning at 8:00 AM and ending at 4:45 PM.  After hours transportation may be provided by Campus Safety on a case-by-case basis depending on demand.

Transportation services can only be provided for a maximum of four weeks.  Thereafter it is the responsibility of the student to identify an option for extended transportation services beyond the four weeks.

Note:  Service may be limited by the number of requests received during a given time period.  However, every attempt will be made to meet the rider’s request for service.

Other Resources for Temporary Ambulatory Disabilities

Temporary Parking Permit

In some circumstances, Scripps students may be approved for a temporary parking permit to get to and from classes at the other Claremont Colleges.  This permit is granted for a limited amount of time and is not renewable.  Scripps students must already possess an approved Scripps parking permit to be eligible.  For approval, talk to the Assistant Dean of Students/Director of Academic Support Services about an Inter-Campus parking permit.

Electric Scooter

For students that have a need for transportation services beyond four weeks, it is recommended that they look into renting a scooter.  Below are some resources to consider:

Temporary Housing Accommodations

In some circumstances it is appropriate to provide a student with temporary housing on the first floor of a residence hall that better meets accessibility needs and recovery demands.  The availability of this space is limited and highly dependent on demand.  To request temporary housing accommodations, contact the department of Academic Resources and Services at ars@scrippscollege.edu.

Temporary Dining Support Services

As necessary, the Dean of Students Office will coordinate with Dining Services to ensure that a student with temporary disabilities is provided with assistance during each meal service.  To request temporary dining support services, contact the department of Academic Resources and Services at ars@scrippscollege.edu.
