Academic Accommodations

Documentation

Students who are requesting support services are required to submit documentation to verify eligibility under the ADA of 1990 and ADAAA of 2008.  The documentation must include medical or psychological information from a certified professional. This documentation assists our office in responding appropriately to the individual needs of the student.  For the most accurate assessment of current level of functioning, the SASS office encourages psycho-educational documentation to be no older than 3 years.  Student Academic Support Services reserves the right to determine eligibility for services based on the submitted documentation.  All documentation is confidential.

Accommodations

Student Academic Support Services works with each student on a case-by-case basis to determine and implement appropriate accommodations based on individual needs and documentation.  Accommodations are provided to assist the student in achieving the intended outcome of the course, as long as the accommodation does not alter the fundamental nature or requirements of the course or program.
