Accessibility Resources will consider all documentation submitted. Documentation will assist Accessibility Resources in understanding how the disability impacts the student in an academic setting and the current impact of the disability as it relates to the accommodations requested. Reviewing documentation is a collaborative process and is handled on a case-to-case basis. The eligibility determination process is not a same-day process. Once documentation is received, it will be reviewed in order of receipt; therefore, it is recommended that documentation be submitted well in advance of any accommodation related needs.
NOTE: Students who have readily observable disabilities (e.g. wheelchair user, white cane user, arm in sling) may not need to submit documentation. We ask that you contact the office at 607-436-2137, or stop by the office during walk-in hours, to schedule a Welcome Meeting.
Documentation should provide proof of diagnosis and/or prior accommodations. Students should submit at least one of the following:
- IEP/504 plan
- A psycho-educational or neuropsychological evaluation
- Accommodation letter from previous postsecondary institution
- Medical records / patient portal diagnostic summary
- Letter from a healthcare professional, on letterhead, which confirms a diagnosis.
The following information is helpful, but not required, in order to determine the best possible accommodations and supports:
- Severity of the disorder (mild/moderate/severe)
- Medication or treatment currently prescribed
- Recommended accommodations that may assist the student in minimizing the impact of the condition in an academic setting.
