Getting Started

To register with the Office of Disability Services, you will need to provide documentation that establishes disability status and eligibility for disability services. This documentation should:

  1. Attest to the presence of a disabling condition as defined by the ADA - a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities when compared to most people in the general population, and
  2. Demonstrate substantial limitations impacting performance in the academic environment when compared to most people in the general population.

Once you have appropriate documentation, you will complete a New Student Accommodations Request Form and schedule an intake; during this intake, you will meet with one of our disability coordinators, who will review and evaluate your documentation to determine eligibility. During this interactive process, you and the coordinator will also discuss what reasonable accommodations would mitigate the functional limitations of your disability.
