If you are a Prospective Student or a Student seeking academic accommodations please take the following steps:
Step 1. Submit a completed Student Intake Form
Step 2. Read Documentation Guidelines for your specific disability
Step 3. Provide documentation. The accommodations process is an interactive one that requires documentation of the disabling condition and functional limitations that result. Under the 2008 ADA Amendment Act, key questions that should be addressed in documentation include:
- Is there clear evidence of a disability?
- What is the impact of the disability?
- Does it substantially limit a major life activity?
- Is there history of receiving services?
Step 4. Submit all documentation and forms electronically to the Office of Disability Services at [email protected]
If you are having accessibility issues with any of the forms or need help filling it out please contact us at 406-994-2824
