Students with a chronic physical, mobility, or health-related disability must provide documentation verifying a disabling condition by a licensed health care professional who is currently working with the student. The diagnostician must be an impartial individual who is not a family member of the student.
The diagnosis must reflect the student's present level of functioning in a major life activity affected by the disability with recommendations for accommodations. The diagnosis should include the initial diagnosis date, as well as any medical information relating to student’s needs, including the current impact of medication on the student’s ability to perform in an academic or community living setting.
The student must present documentation to the director of SAS prior to obtaining accommodations and services. All recommended accommodations must be clearly linked to the diagnosis with an explanation of each.
