Eligibility for Accommodations

  • Individuals with a condition that rises to the level of a disability are entitled to reasonable accommodations. The Americans with Disabilities Act defines disability as “with respect to an individual: (A) a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of such individual; (B) a record of such an impairment; or (C) being regarded as having such an impairment.” 42 U.S.C. § 12102(2). Disabilities may include, but are not limited to, learning differences or disabilities, physical and mobility impairments, sensory impairments, psychological disorders, and/or chronic health impairments.
  • Note: Having received accommodations in high school through an IEP or a 504 plan does not automatically make you eligible for services in college. You must register for services and provide supporting documentation for review; IEPs are not acceptable forms of documentation. If it is determined that you are eligible to receive accommodations, the recommended accommodations may be different from those you received in high school.
