Certification of Eligibility for Accommodationss

Once disability status has been established, a student will be asked to complete a "Declaration of Disability and Request for Accommodations and Adjustments" form (see Appendix A). The student will meet with a DSS staff member to review accommodation requests and to explore other disability-related needs. Each accommodation request will be given serious consideration, and requested accommodation, or appropriate alternative accommodations, that are both reasonable and supported by documentation will be approved and listed on an accommodations approval form. The student is then issued a DSS certification card, which is presented to instructors when accommodations (e.g., note taking assistance or extended time on exams) are requested. Copies of all forms used in the accommodation request and approval process become part of the student's DSS file.

DSS personnel understand that accommodation needs may change as new challenges arise or if the impact of the student's impairment changes. Therefore, student are encouraged to check in regularly with DSS personnel. This regular contact allows staff to monitor the usefulness and appropriateness of each accommodation .
