Application Procedures

Initial Application Procedure

Students are responsible for initiating contact with the Disability Services Office. A Request for Disability Services and supporting forms may be obtained in Building F, room 255. Medical documentation, which substantiates the disability, must accompany the request for services.

A description of appropriate medical documentation is detailed in this document. No accommodation(s) will be given without appropriate medical documentation. If another evaluation is obtained after the initial intake or the disability has changed in some way, specifically worsened and/or limitations have increased, further medical documentation must be presented. It is the responsibility of Disability Services to arrange academic accommodations based on medical documentation, and it is the responsibility of each student to provide medical documentation upon request.

The College is not responsible for evaluation or re-evaluation expenses or any other expenses involved in obtaining required medical documentation. Request for accommodations must be made no later than two weeks prior to the start of classes of the semester for which the student is requesting modifications. Requests for services are not retroactive. Failure to follow Disability Services’ policies and procedures may result in delayed services or ineligibility for services.

The following documents must be submitted in person. Emails, faxes, scanned materials, or other means of transmitting documents are not acceptable.

  • Request for Disability Services
  • Appropriate Medical Documentation (updated every three years)
  • Authorization to Release Information
  • Disability Services Contract
  • Signed Student Rights and Responsibilities Acknowledgement
  • Voter Declaration Form (and Voter Registration Application if wanting to register to vote)
