Documentation is necessary to establish both the presence of a disability and the need for accommodation. Therefore, in order to accurately determine and provide the most appropriate accommodations and auxiliary services, the following documentation guidelines are recommended: Please remember before documentation is reviewed, students MUST complete the online Intake Form.
An Individual Educational Program (IEP) or 504 Plan may be useful but by itself will not be accepted to establish the need for accommodations.
All documentation received by OSS is reviewed in date order of receipt. In order to ensure timely access to all eligible accommodations OSS highly encourages students submit documentation well in advance of suggested semester deadline dates.
Requests for specific accommodations will be reviewed on an individual case by case basis.
