Disability Documentation for Higher Education

Students who intend to request accommodations related to a disability issue must provide documentation of that disability.

Disability documentation criteria are based on published recommendations from Disability Compliance for Higher Education , volume 11, issue 2, September 2005. 

The coordinator of the UMC Office for Students with Disabilities retains the right to accept disability information as adequate or to request additional information from the student prior to beginning services. In some circumstances when assessment is in process or the disability issue is a visible disability, the coordinator may decide to begin services on a provisional basis.
