These include, but are not limited to:

  • Acquired Brain Injury
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Blind and Low Vision
  • Deaf and Hard of Hearing
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Medical Disability
  • Mental Health Disability (e.g., Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder)
  • Physical or Mobility Disability
  • Specific Learning Disorders (learning disabilities)
  • Temporary Medical Condition (e.g., concussion, injury)

If you are a student with a disability, please refer to the Documentation Guide for specific requirements of the documentation you need to provide to Student Accessibility Services.

What if I don’t have documentation?
