Process for Receiving Accommodation

The Disability Support Services Office provides services for students who qualify based upon:

  1. A disability that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
  2. Documentation is received that outlines the nature of the student’s disability and condition; evaluated and prepared by Vocational Rehabilitation evaluator, psychologist, psychiatrist, medical doctor. Documentation that identifies previous accommodation strategies or those strategies recommended is helpful. This information should be no more than 3 years old. Students who have I.E.P. documentation may need additional documentation in order to receive the appropriate accommodations.
  3. A personal meeting with the director will be scheduled with the student to complete the process. The director will meet with each student on an individual basis to set up an accommodation plan. The plan identifies specific accommodation services that will be provided for the student, as well as outline the responsibilities for both the student and the Disability Support Services Office. Services are individualized in an attempt to provide the most appropriate services for the needs of the student.
