Disability Verification Requirements

Students are required to provide the following disability documentation to Disability Services in order to determine eligibility for services.

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008, individuals with disabilities are protected from discrimination and may be entitled to reasonable accommodations. To establish that an individual is covered under the law, documentation must indicate that a specific disability exists and that the identified disability limits one or more major life activities. A diagnosis of a disorder in and of itself does not automatically qualify an individual for accommodations. The documentation must also support the request for accommodations and academic adjustments.

Please ensure all disability documentation has been signed and dated by the professional filling out the form. All forms may be downloaded and printed from the Disability Services webpage.
