Steps to Receiving Reasonable Accommodations

1. Self-Identify

You must identify yourself as someone having a disability in order to receive accommodations. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) a disability is defined as a "mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities."

Major life activities may include walking, talking, hearing, seeing, learning, caring for yourself, performing manual tasks, breathing, or writing.

If you have difficulty performing any of these major life activities you may have a disability and you may be entitled to reasonable accommodations.

 

2. Show Current Evidence

You must obtain current evidence from a physician or psychologist in order to continue the accommodation process.

If you need assistance getting diagnoses or evidence of your disability, please contact your area's Vocational Rehabilitation Services.

 

3. Information and Release

You will need to fill out an Individual Post-Secondary Plan form and a Release of Information form.

 

4. Consultation and Letters

Once the above steps have been completed, bring your required documentation and forms to Katelin Miller and set up an appointment to discuss accommodations and other needs.

Once the documentation is reviewed, you may pick up accommodation letters to distribute to your instructors at the beginning of each semester.

For Documentation Guidelines please refer to the guidelines of the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD):
Supporting Accommodation Requests: Guidance on Documentation Practices
