Requesting Accommodations

Documentation Guidelines

Requests for accommodation should include documentation. Documentation is confidential information from an appropriately qualified health or other service professional who is knowledgeable about your condition. In addition to information provided on the Request Form and in conversation with Disability Resources, documentation from external sources can help Disability Resources better identify impacts in an academic setting and make informed decisions to determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations.

Appeals and Grievances

Information about appeal process if an accommodation is denied, as well as information about the grievance procedures for discrimination and harassment.

Temporary Impairments

Temporary impairments such as broken bones, concussions, short-term illnesses, and recovery from surgery are generally not regarded as disabilities. However, aid and temporary adjustments may still be available.
