New Student Request Process Through CSD
It is the student's responsibility to self-identify to CSD, provide documentation that meets documentation guidelines, and request specific services.
NOTE: Pending the receipt of appropriate documentation, the University reserves the right to deny services of accommodations.
1. Complete the online Application for Accommodation Services
2. Provide disability documentation, either attached to your application or submitted separately to CSD
Providing documentation of disability is the responsibility of the student. In general, the less obvious the disability, the more information is required to assess a student's needs and make accommodation recommendations. Documentation should be recent, relevant and comprehensive and, where appropriate, contain test scores and interpretation (e.g. learning disability reports, audiograms, etc.). If the original documentation is incomplete or inadequate to determine the extent of the disability or reasonable accommodation, the university has the discretion to require additional documentation. Any cost incurred in obtaining additional documentation is also borne by the student. If the documentation is complete but the university desires a second professional opinion, the university bears that cost.
3. Schedule an appointment for an Intake
As a student receiving services through CSD, you will need to stay in contact with your Disability Services Coordinator to discuss your needs and stay updated on CSD processes. It is the student's responsibility to send their Accommodation Notifications to their instructors in a timely manner. These notifications communicate and verify to your instructors that you have been approved to receive accommodations for their class.
