Student eligibility and requirements
Service eligibility is based in large part on the quality and comprehensiveness of a student’s disability documentation and degree of current functional need. A record of prior academic adjustments, services, or program modifications, in and of itself, is usually insufficient to support the same array in higher education.
A physician’s, psychologist’s or other practitioner’s determination, recommendation or assertion about appropriate adjustments is valued, but there are many factors to consider. The ultimate judgment rests with a college or university.
Generally, it is the student’s responsibility to provide current and comprehensive documentation that substantiates a student’s disability-related need for services at a college or university (this is different from K-12 in the United States, where schools/school districts may be required to arrange and fund certain kinds of disability assessments).
