Academic Centers


Documentation Required to Utilize The Access and Accommodation Resource Center

In certain cases, the AARC understands that documentation may not be available. The student is still welcome to schedule an intake meeting to discuss options for receiving accommodations.

In order for students to obtain accommodations through the Access and Accommodations Resource Center, the student must provide documentation from a qualified medical provider, verifying the condition and exhibited symptoms. For ease, students may opt to provide their provider with our Provider Verification of Disability Form, or the provider may provide their own document which must include:

  • Diagnosis (has been evaluated within the last 5 years)
  • Symptoms and/or presentations of diagnosis and major life activities effected
  • Expected incapacitation time frame (if temporary condition)
  • Provider Contact Information and Credentials

IEP’s/ 504 plans

Although accommodations from and Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan may not transfer directly from the K-12 setting, these documents can suffice as appropriate documentation for the AARC.
