Disability Services is responsible for verifying student eligibility for accommodations and for coordinating accommodations across campus. Students must initiate the request for services and must provide appropriate documentation to support the need for such services.
To obtain academic and/or environmental accommodations, please do the following:
Obtain recent disability documentation and complete the Disability Services Registration form. Documentation should clearly state the following:
- Your diagnosis
- The symptoms which impact your ability to function in the educational environment
- Specific recommendations for accommodations
All documentation received by the University is strictly confidential and is held in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and related regulations.
Make an appointment to meet with the Director of Disability Services. Please bring the completed Registration form and your disability documentation to this appointment. The Director of Disability Services will highlight what support services and accommodations are available based on your history, symptoms, and disability documentation. An Accommodation Agreement will be created for you (ADA/504 Plan) that outlines what specific accommodations you are eligible for. You will be responsible for delivering these to your course instructors each semester to advise them of your needs.
Students seeking new accommodations are strongly advised to meet with the director and establish eligibility prior to the start of the semester. If you have any questions about disability documentation guidelines or this process, please do not hesitate to contact us for support.
We are glad you are here and look forward to working with you!
