Steps to Register as a Student with a Disability
Directions and Checklist
- Complete the online Student Disability Request for Services form.
- Print a copy of the Documentation Guidelines for YOUR disability. Give the guidelines to your appropriate medical provider. The guidelines will assist the provider in writing your documentation. Once you have your documentation, submit it to our office. You may submit the documentation by mail, fax, or by bringing it to our office. *What does "documentation" mean? It is very important that you view our Documentation Guidelines and print them for your medical provider. Many students assume that "documentation" means medical records, but it does not. Documentation usually consists of a medical doctor's letter and/or a psychoeducational evaluation, but may vary by category of disability.
- Once the Student Disability Request for Services form has been completed AND we have received your documentation, we will review the material and mail you a letter updating you on the status of your application. In some cases additional documentation will be needed.
- If your application is complete and your status as a documented student with a disability has been confirmed, you will be asked to stop into our office the first week of classes to review your accommodations, pick up your "Notification to Instructor" letters of introduction for you to present to your professors, and to discuss accommodation procedures.
