Students with Special Needs

The University representative responsible for receiving official documentation of student disabilities and facilitating accommodation requests is the Director of Counseling, Testing & Health Services. Students who are otherwise qualified for a university program or course and who desire accommodation(s) for a disabling condition are responsible for providing acceptable documentation to this individual. As a general rule, acceptable documentation must have been produced within the last 3 years by a licensed professional qualified to make the respective diagnosis.  If the student has an obvious or non-changing condition (blindness, absence of a limb, etc.), the school may not require the documentation to be dated within the last 3 years. Any documentation submitted to the University for consideration must be provided in a timely manner prior to the period of stated need.
