To receive consideration for accommodation and/or auxiliary aids and services due to a disability, students must submit a request for such accommodation and/or aids and services to the Assistant Dean of Students. In addition, students must submit current documentation of their disability, disorder, condition or physical condition in order to be eligible for accommodations and/or auxiliary aids and services.
Students requesting a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) must provide the following information to the Office of the Dean of Students from his or her physician, educational diagnostician, licensed psychologist, psychiatrist, or other qualified professional. Documentation received will be considered in determining whether a student is disabled as defined by the ADA, and therefore entitled to reasonable accommodation.
The information provided should include:
Documentation should be submitted on office letterhead with the signature and credentials of qualified professional. Once the Office of the Dean of Students receives the documentation, it becomes part of the student's educational record and is protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
Any questions from the physician/diagnostician may be directed to Kevin Robinowich, Assistant Dean, Office of the Dean of Students, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 214.243.1789
To simplify the documentation process, the following forms may be used for some types of disabilities; alternately, a formal letter may be created as long as it contains all of the elements listed above.
This website does not provide a form for documentation of other (non-ADD/ADHD) learning disorders (dyslexia, writing disorders, math disorders, etc.). Instead, students should submit documentation satisfying the guidelines provided here.
