Documentation Guidelines

​​​​If you are seeking accommodation from the Accessibility Services Office, you are required to produce documentation that verifies your eligibility under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Documentation serves as a foundation that legitimizes your request for accommodations that are appropriate and reasonable. Documentation serves as a foundation to help your Accessibility Services Case Manager create a specific accommodation plan for you.

Documentation should include:

  1. An evaluation by a qualified professional that may include a description of the diagnostic tests, methods and/or criteria used.
    • Submitting the most current documentation available helps the case managers create a more specific accommodation support plan for you.
  2. The expected progression or stability of the disability over time. Periodic updates of documentation may be requested in situations where the etiology (cause or origin) of the disability and your level of functioning may change significantly over a short period of time.
  3. Treatments, medications, accommodations, auxiliary aids and services currently prescribed or in use.
  4. The professional’s signature, title, credentials, date and license number on professional letterhead.
  5. In cases where documentation is insufficient, you will be asked to provide additional or clarifying information.
