Temporary Physical Problems Guideline

STEP 1: Present to our office documentation from your doctor. Documentation can be mailed, faxed, or hand-carried. If you mail or fax, please call to make sure it was received. Sometimes things do not make it here.


Guidelines for documentation


  • Must be typed, on letterhead.

  • Must state qualifications of doctor.

  • Must state and describe the current problem.

  • Must list the expected length of duration.

Step 2: Go to the Disability Services website at:

Print out and submit the Student Intake Form. This will be placed with your documentation.

Step 3: Once adequate documentation AND your Intake Form have been received, a committee will review your file and determine registration status. You will then be NOTIFIED BY MAIL about the next step. If the documentation is adequate, your letter will ask you to set up an intake meeting. If needed, the letter will request additional documentation.

Step 4: Arrive at your intake meeting prepared to talk with a staff member about yourself, your disability, accommodations, and responsibilities in the process.
