Documentation Requirements

All disabilities that affect learning and/or require a physical alteration will require documentation that verifies the disability, clarifies the areas of learning affected and state the accommodations recommended as appropriate.

The purpose of the documentation is twofold: to help the Special Populations Disability Services Coordinator determine if the student is a "qualified individual with a disability" therefore eligible for accommodations, and to determine appropriate accommodations. Documentation legitimizes a student’s request for accommodations and in general includes the following:

The documentation should be prepared by a professional. It should be in the form of an assessment rather than a statement. The documentation should be dated within the last five years; however the five year rule may be waived for students with disabilities that are considered to be stable.



A consolidated area for orientation for future and current students including enrollment, registration, academic, and technology resources.
