Students who plan to request reasonable accommodations must submit complete and current documentation of disability. The documentation should include an evaluation by an appropriately qualified professional and it should indicate the current impact of the disability as it relates to the request for accommodation. Some examples of documentation include educational evaluations, diagnostic reports and medical reports. An Individual Education Plans (IEP) or a 504 Plan might serve as a helpful guide in the process, but they are not a substitute for complete and current documentation.
In addition to documentation, students are required to complete a consent information form
Once documentation and the consent information form is received, it will be reviewed in order of receipt. Because eligibility and the accommodation process take time, it is recommended that documentation be submitted well in advance of any accommodation request.
Once documentation has been reviewed by the office of disability services, the student must schedule a meeting with the director to discuss and determine reasonable accommodations.
Students must request accommodations each semester.
Students who are registered with disability services will receive an email reminder, sent to their Assumption.edu email account prior to the start of each semester.
When submitting documentation, follow the guidelines developed by the Association on Higher Education and Disability
