Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, qualified students with disabilities are entitled to reasonable academic accommodations. Applicants requesting reasonable accommodations because of disabilities must provide photocopies of documentation, 72 hours prior to the scheduled test date, according to these standards:
1. The documentation must be an evaluation and/or diagnosis by a licensed professional. The diagnosis must be within the professionals scope of practice. If testing was performed on the candidate, the results of those tests must be provided.
2. The documentation must be signed by the licensed professional on official letterhead from that person's practice. The professional must be clearly identified by name and profession.
3. The documentation must be from within the last three (3) years.
4. The documentation must state the diagnosis clearly and must specify what accommodations are required for the candidate to experience a fair administration of the examination. The accommodations must be presented as a requirement given the nature of the disability, not as a suggestion.
Those applicants requiring accommodations must contact the Assistant Dean for Students: firstname.lastname@example.org
