It is the student’s responsibility to provide documentation of disability from a licensed professional along with other application materials.  Documentation must meet the following criteria:

  • Generated by an approved expert in the specific area of disability.
  • Sufficiently comprehensive, identifying the testing mechanisms, procedures and findings, and the recommended accommodations.
  • Sufficiently recent to provide an accurate representation of the current disability and its impact on academic endeavors.

If the initial documentation does not provide enough information to determine the extent of the disability and reasonable accommodations, the disability services director has the discretion to require additional documentation.  Students are responsible for the costs related to obtaining documentation.

Allow 30 days, after submission of all materials, for Disability Services staff to evaluate your application and reply.
