What is appropriate documentation?
- Documentation should be typed on letterhead stationary or be in report form.
- Documentation should include the following:
- A clearly stated diagnosis of a disability
- The student's functional limitation in a postsecondary academic environment
- The signature, printed name, title, and professional credentials of the evaluator
- The date of evaluation
- Documentation must be a comprehensive assessment addressing the ability to function in a postsecondary academic environment. An IEP/504 plan may not be sufficient documentation by itself. The IEP may be included to support the psycho-educational evaluation or other medical documentation.
- The documentation guidelines are given to assist the student in obtaining appropriate documentation from qualified professionals to support accommodation requests in postsecondary academic program.
- Disability Support Services staff will review the submitted documentation and determine appropriateness of the documentation and accommodations on a case-by-case basis.
