Documentation Guidelines

Disability and Student Intervention Services (DSIS) requires that all students requesting services provide thorough documentation of their disability from a qualified professional. A copy of the student's IEP from high school is not sufficient documentation.

If you do not have documentation already, the certification forms below were developed to provide DSIS with the information needed to determine which accommodations and services are appropriate. Please have your health care provider fill out the appropriate form as completely as possible. Complete documentation must be provided before accommodations can be granted.

If you do not have documentation already, the guidelines below were developed by DSIS for your provider with guidance on what documentation should contain.

Guidelines for Documentation

Please keep a personal copy of all documentation you submit to DSIS. DSIS does not release copies of documentation back to students or send documentation to other institutions.

Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) is the national organization that assists colleges in promoting accessible campus environments for students with disabilities, working with students and others to identify reasonable accommodations that remove barriers to access, and ensuring that accommodations determined to be reasonable are provided and effective.
