A student must satisfy the definition of a disability as established by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  Section 504 defines a disability as a condition which substantially limits one or more major life activities such as learning, walking, seeing, hearing, breathing, caring for oneself, and working.  To be eligible for accommodations, a student must provide appropriate documentation of each disability that demonstrates an accompanying substantial limitation to one or more major life activities.

To obtain services and accommodations, current documentation is required (within 5 years) and must be presented to the Office of Disabilities.

The following are acceptable forms of documentation and must include a diagnosis, impact of the diagnosed disability and recommended accommodations.
