2. Supply Documentation.

Disability documentation must be submitted with your request form.

A report from an orthopedist, neurologist, or other physician regarding physical disabilities can be included, and should be from within the last three years.

3. Make an appointment.
After the evaluation and enrollment, schedule a meeting with the Director of Learning Support Services to discuss accommodations. Online students can make a phone appointment if necessary. The Director of Learning Support Services will notify appropriate staff and faculty members for specific accommodations.
