Documentation Guidelines

Eligibility for Services

By law, students with a disability do not have to self-disclose or register with the Center for Access and Success. If, on the other hand, a student is seeking academic accommodations or adjustments, he/she must contact our office to request services.

In order to determine eligibility for an academic adjustment/auxiliary aid, the student must register at Center for Access and Success and provide documentation of the disability. The documentation must be current, provide a clear diagnosis by the appropriate professional, and specify the functional limitations related to the disability. At that point a decision of appropriate academic accommodation(s) is made. These determinations are made on a case-by-case basis.

Students must complete accommodation request forms each semester for the specific courses for which they are requesting accommodations. Accommodations for exams, papers, and assignments can not be made retroactively.
