University Disability Services (UDS)

General Guidelines for Disability Documentation and Accommodation Eligibility

  • No accommodations will be granted without proper documentation.
  • A student must provide diagnostic documentation of a disability produced by a licensed medical professional who has the credentials to diagnose the disability at hand.
  • Documentation must include a description of how the impairment significantly limits the individual’s major life activities. That is, a clinical diagnosis is not synonymous with a disability that justifies academic accommodations.
  • Documentation must both establish disability and provide adequate information on the functional impact of the disability so that effective accommodations can be identified.
  • Documentation must be current. While some disabilities and their symptoms remain static, others are ever-changing. Please ask University Disability Services (UDS) for specifications.
  • UDS reserves the right to contact the licensed medical/health professional for further information/clarification if necessary.
  • Accommodations are considered on a case-by-case basis. That is, two students with the “same” diagnosis may not receive the same accommodation.
  • Accommodations are considered on a course-by-course basis. That is, one student may receive an accommodation in one course but not another course in the same quarter.
  • Accommodations are not retroactive.
  • Accommodations are not automatically renewed every quarter. Students must contact UDS and meet with the coordinator every quarter.
