Coordinator, Academic &
Student Accessibility Services
Student Accessibility Services (SAS) provides support services for students with diagnosed disabilities. SAS uses an interactive, case-by-case approach when determining eligibility for services and reasonable accommodations. Students requesting accommodations from SAS may be required to provide documentation regarding their specific disability. This documentation should demonstrate a disability covered under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (and the ADA As Amended in 2008). The ADA defines a disability as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
There are multiple ways for students to provide their documentation to SAS, which can include:
1. Diagnostic statement identifying the disability and date of diagnosis
2. Description of the diagnostic methodology used to identify the specific disability
3. Description of the student’s current functional limitations in relation to academic performance
4. Description of the expected progression and/or stability of the disability
5. Recommendations for accommodations
