Students are responsible for obtaining appropriate documentation of their disability from a qualified professional.
Once in college, if students suspect that they have a disability but do not have appropriate documentation, the student is responsible for seeking an evaluation and paying for that evaluation. The DSS office can provide you with a referral list in order to seek an evaluation.
Some schools may require more documentation than others but all schools will require you to provide documentation prepared by a qualified professional. The student is responsible for any fees associated with obtaining required documentation.
This depends on the type of disability; for medical conditions, a medical doctor; for psychiatric conditions, a psychiatrist, therapist, psychologist, or social worker; for learning disabilities, a psycho-educational evaluation from a school psychologist or clinical neuro-psychologist.
Fundamental alteration – accommodations can not reduce academic standards of the college.
Undue hardship – if accommodation costs too much or if organization does not have resources to respond to request.(This generally has not held up in court when relating to colleges, the college’s overall budget is taken into consideration not the DSS budget)
Personal service – services that a person with a disability would use regardless of attendance at college.
