Steps to Requesting Services/Accommodations
Schedule an Accessibility Services intake appointment with the Accessibility Services
Coordinator by calling (660) 359-3948 ext. 1418
- Self-identify that you are a student with a disability by contacting the Accessibility Services Coordinator
- Fill out a Request for Accessibility Services
- Schedule an intake appointment with the Accessibility Services Coordinator
- Provide a list of requested accommodations
- Provide documentation
NOTE: Students may request accessibility services at any time throughout the semester, however, accommodation requests need to be made at least 4 weeks prior to the start of class for the accommodations to be provided in a timely manner. Requested accommodations made after this time may be delayed. Every attempt will be made to provide interim accommodations and when possible, the accommodation request will be expedited.
During the intake appointment, the following will be discussed:
- What brought the student to seek out the Accessibility Services office
- The student’s requested accommodations
- Barriers to access identified by the student
- Placement testing
- The student’s educational goals
- Academic load (full/part time)
- Accommodations utilized in the past by the student, if applicable
Students requesting accommodations are required to submit documentation to verify eligibility under the ADA of 1990 and Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Appropriate medical documentation of the disability must be provided so that the Accessibility Services office can 1) determine the student’s eligibility for accommodation; and 2) if the student is eligible, determine appropriate academic accommodations.
Disability documentation must include a written evaluation from a physician, psychologist or other qualified specialist that establishes the nature and extent of the disability and includes the basis for the diagnosis and the dates of testing. The documentation must establish the current need for an accommodation.
The type of documentation will vary according to the disability. Examples include:
- A psycho-educational or neuropsychological assessment that includes cognitive and achievement testing for learning or other cognitive disabilities and attention deficit disorder.
- A psychiatrist’s report for psychological disabilities.
- A letter from a doctor or other specialist for physical and most other disabilities, etc.
Documentation may need to be updated or augmented in order to be reviewed more fully. Students who submit documentation that does not meet the guidelines will be required to send an updated evaluation before being considered for services.
Please send all documentation to:
