To ensure the provision of "reasonable and appropriate services," students must provide current and comprehensive documentation of their disability with a diagnosis, functional limitations, impact on learning and daily academic functioning.
Generally, documentation must be no more than three years old. The records kept in the DSC are strictly confidential and are not part of a student's academic record.
All students that are seeking “reasonable accommodations” from DSC must self-disclose the presence of a specific disability. In order to receive services, appropriate documentation, complete with diagnosis and/or specific limitations must be provided. Students with psychological/psychiatric disabilities should document a current treatment plan and report from a doctor with whom they are under treatment.
No accommodations can be provided until documentation is received. Students should meet with DSC with their complete documentation package as soon as possible after admission, well before orientation and classes begin.
Documentation may be sent to:
