Student Documentation Guidelines

If a student with a disability wishes to receive an accommodation, it is the responsibility of the student to inform Naomi Housman, the ADA Coordinator, at accessibility@gratz.edu and request an accommodation by submitting the Student Accessibility Services Verification Form at https://www.gratz.edu/students/policies/accessibility-services/student-accessibility-services-verification-form.

The ADA Coordinator will review and consider all pieces of documentation submitted for academic accommodation requests. Documentation will assist the ADA Coordinator in understanding how the disability impacts the student in an academic setting and the current impact of the disability as it relates to the accommodations requested. Reviewing documentation is a collaborative process and is handled on a case-to-case basis.

Documentation must provide proof of diagnosis and/or prior accommodations. In general, Gratz College follows the guidance from the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) on documentation review and accommodation approval. 

Students should submit the following:

Temporary/Provisional Accommodations

Students with temporary injuries, such as a broken leg/arm, concussion, or surgery recovery can register with and receive services through Accessibility Services on a temporary basis.

In unique situations, provisional accommodations may be approved for students who can provide evidence of actively engaging in the diagnostic process. These provisional accommodations are typically approved for one-two (1-2) terms, but can be extended or approved on a permanent basis upon receipt of appropriate documentation.
