Documentation Guidelines

AccessibleNU staff and students work together via an interactive process to determine appropriate academic accommodations. The process works best when AccessibleNU staff has the opportunity to review documentation prior to an intake meeting.

The most beneficial documentation:

Documentation is not intended to put a student in the position of proving their disability and is weighed in conjunction with the student's self report. It is important to remember that a diagnosis alone does not automatically qualify an individual for accommodations and the condition must have a significant impact on the student's functioning to be considered for accommodations.
