Disability Documentation Guidelines

Documentation must be current, in most cases within three to five years of the current date; however, discretion will be used in accepting documentation of conditions that are permanent or non-varying.  Some conditions that are chronic and / or changing may require more current documentation and / or frequent updates.

Documentation must be prepared by a "qualified professional".  A qualified professional includes, but is not limited to the following: Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Medical Specialist, Educational Psychologists, or Neurophysiologists.  Documentation must include both diagnostic information and an explanation of the current manifestation or functional limitations of the condition.  Documentation should be submitted to Learning Support Services, Melrose Hall, room 020.
NOTE: An IEP or a 504 Plan is not considered appropriate college documentation.
