APPLICATION FOR ACCOMMODATIONS AND SERVICES
Students who are seeking accommodations and services on the basis of a disability are required to submit
documentation of their disability to the Office of Students with Disabilities. In accordance with State Board of
Education Rule 6A-20.111(2), the documentation must be sufficiently recent, as determined by the Office of
Students with Disabilities. Documentation should include a valid and reasonable assessment of the student’s
needs; be specific and conclusive, demonstrating that the student has physical, emotional or mental
impairment(s) which substantially limit(s) one or more major life activities, as well as showing how the
disability will substantially limit the student’s ability to meet the minimum full-time load requirements.
The Office of Students with Disabilities maintains the right to reject documentation that does not verify a
student’s disability or justify the need for reasonable accommodations and maintain the option of seeking a
second, professional opinion regarding documentation presented to verify disabilities. Documentation costs are
borne by the student, as are costs of obtaining additional documentation and must be on file with the Office of
Students with Disabilities in order for appropriate services to be provided.
In accordance with State Board of Education Rule 6A-20.111(1), the documentation submitted must be prepared
by a professional who has expertise in the area related to the disability in question and be a licensed physician; a
licensed psychologist; a licensed school psychologist; a certified school psychologist; a licensed audiologist; a
licensed speech-language pathologist; or, a certified school speech-language pathologist.
