Students who have documentation from a medical doctor, psychologist or psychiatrist for specific learning and/or health handicaps may receive services through the Office of Disability Services. It is not considered a disability if the condition is short term, however impairments that are in remission that substantially limit a major life activity when active are considered disabling.
It is the responsibility of the student to submit documentation supporting the need for accommodations. The documentation must clearly state the functional limitations of the disability and how the disability impacts the student’s learning. Accommodations must be reasonable and ones that do not lower or modify academic standards rather minimize the effect of the disability on learning.
Students with disabilities must be qualified; consequently they are responsible to complete all requirements for the degree. Students should make an appointment with the Director of Disability Services for information concerning services.
Submit all documentation to:The Office of Disability Services
