General Disability Information
Arranging for Accommodations
Documentation of your disability will be needed— this is information from a qualified licensed professional such as your doctor, therapist, psychoeducational testing, etc. Most recent documentation (dated within the last five years) is preferred. If the documentation you have currently is older than five years, we may ask that you obtain updated testing in order to get a clear picture of your current abilities and challenges. Your documentation must include information from a qualified professional that addresses your current functioning, diagnosis, and recommendations for appropriate accommodations.
Your Role as a Student
We encourage you to advocate for yourself during this process. Please make an appointment with the disabilities office (located within the Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC)) through phone contact, email, or walk-in.
