When submitting your request, please provide appropriate documentation from a qualified medical provider. After reviewing the information, we will work to provide an appropriate accommodation. Appropriate accommodations are based on several factors that include: 1) a conversation with the student, 2) the medical documentation and any recommendations provided by medical professionals, and 3) the nature of the course, program or activity the student is involved in.

Once a preliminary accommodation is created, it is then discussed with the student before it is implemented.

If you have any questions about receiving an accommodation, please contact our ADA Representative.

Appeal Process

Any student dissatisfied with the adjustments made to accommodate a disability will have the right to appeal. First, the student should contact the ADA Representative to attempt to resolve any issues. If, after working with the ADA Representative the student is still not satisfied, the student should follow the formal appeal process outlined in the University Catalog.
