Disability Documentation Requirements
Students with disabilities that are requesting accommodations and services must schedule a meeting with the Student Support Specialist and/or the Program Director. Students are asked to provide documentation of a diagnosed learning disability, attention deficit disorder and/or a neurological, physical, and/or emotional impairment.
During this meeting, students are asked to describe their disability, their past use of accommodations, or the disability's likely impact on their educational experiences. Types of helpful documentation supportive of such requests include medical records, psycho-educational testing, and school records.
If you don't have copies of this type of information, you are welcome to meet with the Student Support Specialist to discuss other ways to demonstrate a connection between your condition and any academic barriers you anticipate or are facing.
Documentation can provide a valuable tool for helping North Park University understand how courses, systems, and facilities may present barriers, and for planning strategies, including reasonable accommodations, which facilitate access. The Student Support Specialist often uses external documentation to augment conversations with students and to support requests for accommodations.
Please note that the University does not provide psychological and/or educational testing.
