Disability Documentation Required to Receive Services

If you have a documented disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Public Law 933-112 Section 504), you may be eligible to receive accommodations.

A student is considered disabled who has, is regarded as having, or has a history of an impairment that substantially limits a major life activity (caring for one's self, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, working).

Accommodations are provided with appropriate documentation. Documentation must be on file for each disability for which a student requests accommodations. For instance, if a student has a learning disability and a mobility impairment, specific documentation must be on file for both.
