Accommodations for Healthcare Science Majors

Our primary goal is to provide the necessary support to any student with a disability and/or medical condition in removing barriers that could impact their academic success.

With that in mind, the College of Healthcare Sciences has partnered with the Disability Support Services Office to provide healthcare-focused support for any student in their College.

In order to receive accommodations, a student must go through the DSS registration process initially and then renew/request an updated letter every term.

How to Register

  1. Provide documentation about your medical condition and/or disability to the office.
    • This documentation cannot be any older than 3 years and must provide relevant information on the connection between the condition and the accommodations requested.
    • The medical provider can choose between a typed letter (on their letterhead) explaining the student’s condition and how it may impact the student academically, as well as the suggested accommodations or support needed; or use one of our forms.
    • Once all the documentation has been received, an appointment will be set to discuss the accommodations requested and to finalize the registration process.
  2. The DSS Office will provide the student and faculty members with the accommodation letter(s) for the requested term, but it is the student’s responsibility to have a conversation about the accommodations and how/when/if they’ll be needing/using them. If there is a need for assistance in this process, please ensure you make our office aware of this need. 

How to Renew Your Registration

In order to renew/request accommodations, the student is required to complete a renewal request every term.

  2. Click on accommodations- semester request/renewal- click on the semester drop-down list, select the term you want to renew accommodations for.
