This policy informs students on rules and regulations for accessing services for students with disabilities.
There are no definitions for this policy at this time.
Procedures for Accessing Services
Services and/or reasonable accommodations are provided to enrolled students with disabilities who provide documentation and who personally request services through Student Accessibility Services.
- Student submits a confidential registration form and appropriate documentation to SAS at 168 Albert W. Brown Building.
- Documentation is assessed by the coordinator of SAS to determine if it is complete and appropriate.*
- The coordinator of SAS explains policies and procedures regarding letters of accommodation**, exam accommodations, support services, etc. during an interactive intake appointment.
- Services and/or accommodations are implemented.
Students need to request services. Submission of documentation alone does not activate services or accommodations.
* Documentation is assessed for completeness and appropriateness under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Such assessment is necessary in order to establish a student's eligibility for academic accommodations and/or auxiliary aids and services.
** Accommodations received in the past, as well as some accommodations recommended in documentation, may not be considered appropriate at this time.
Important Related Information
Accommodations cannot be implemented until the student's documentation is complete. Further assessment by an appropriate professional may be required if documentation or lacks vital information that is necessary to determine eligibility.
Accommodations will be determined collaboratively with the student and the Coordinator of SAS.
However, SAS is ultimately responsible for determining appropriate and reasonable accommodations.
