Purpose of Documentation
Documentation gives AAS staff the information needed to fully evaluate requests for academic adjustments and auxiliary aids as well as allows staff to understand the impact of your disability as it relates to accommodations requests. It is the student's responsibility to obtain documentation and provide it to AAS.
Eligibility for Services
To be eligible for services, students must have a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as Amended and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Documentation of the disability must explain the disability and the need for accommodations. Eligible students must also meet the academic and technical standards requirements for admission to college programs or activities.
Documentation consists of diagnostic information from a licensed clinical professional familiar with the history and functional implications of our disability. This information must be submitted on the official letterhead of the professional or institution (such as a doctor, psychologist, school, or other agency) describing the disability.
