It is the student’s responsibility to provide information which verifies that the student meets the definition of a disability as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and The ADA Amendments Act of 2008. Federal Law requires that requests for services for students with disabilities be considered on an individual, case-by-case basis.
Information used for determining a disability and/or accommodations may include a student’s self-report, direct observation and interaction with the student, and/or documentation from a qualified professional.
Students need to schedule an appointment for an intake interview with the Director of Disability Services. During the intake interview, students will be given an opportunity to describe their disability and share information about their experiences related to their disability, barriers faced, and/or previous accommodations.
Documentation from a qualified professional should include information on the functional impact of the disability.
Documentation may include assessments, reports, and/or letters from qualified professionals such as health care providers, psychologists, diagnosticians, and/or other information such as a 504 plan, IEP, or CST Report
Documentation may be submitted in person, via mail, or by fax (406) 771-4342. Please do not email documentation.
