Students requesting accommodations should provide supportive documentation regarding their disability.
Submission of documentation is only one part of the interactive process during which accommodations will be determined. The staff in the Supportive Services Office will work with students to determine individualized accommodations that are appropriate for the college setting. These may differ from the recommendations in the documentation or the accommodations a student received in High School.
Disability related documentation should provide information on the functional impact of the disability so that effective accommodations can be identified. Criteria for the source, scope and content of documentation differs by disability type. Documentation may include assessments, reports, and/or letters from qualified evaluators, professionals, or institutions. Common sources of documentation are health care providers, psychologists, diagnosticians, and/or information from a previous school.
Personal needs such as assistance with meals, homework, toileting, personal hygiene, mobility training etc. are the exclusive responsibility of the student. Other items that are not considered reasonable accommodations under the law include, but are not limited to, modification of test contents and waiving essential course or program requirements.
