Documentation

In order to ensure the provision of reasonable and appropriate accommodation and services to students with disabilities, students must provide current documentation of their disability on their provider’s letterhead. Documentation must include:

  • a clear diagnostic statement of their disability with DSM codes
  • a description of the manner in which the disability limits the student, the severity and timeframe of the limitation
  • test results (if applicable)
  • recommendations for accommodations, adaptive devices, and/or assistive services

Confidentiality

Disability Services will maintain the confidentiality of these diagnostic reports to the extent permitted by law and will not release any documentation without a student's informed written consent.
