Documentation for Academic Accommodations.

Specific Information

General documentation requirements include:

  • Accessing accommodations requires information to support an accommodation request including the following:
    • Official letterhead from a licensed medical, diagnostic or psychological professional which clearly states the diagnosis and level of functioning including limitations.
    • The documentation should establish a clear link between the effects of the disability and the accommodation(s) being requested.
    • Information regarding treatment, medication or assistive devices (if any) being used should be included in the documentation if it affects educational functioning.
    • Information should be relevant and generally within last 12 months for psychiatric disabilities, last 5 years for a learning disability and last 3 years for other disabilities except physical or sensory disabilities of a permanent or unchanging nature).
    • School records to determine how your condition impacts you at WCC, including psycho-educational testing reports and accommodations used currently/previously while in school.
    • If the evaluator or physician is listing specific recommendations for accommodations, he/she should provide a detailed explanation as to why each accommodation is recommended, and, they should be correlated with specific functional limitations determined through interview, observation, and/or testing. If accommodations are not clearly identified in a diagnostic report, Disability Services (DS) will seek clarification and, if necessary, more information. The final determination for providing appropriate and reasonable accommodations rests with the Disability Services office.

A diagnostic evaluation is preferred. If none are available, please discuss with a Program Specialist. The attached forms outline the minimal information required.
