We require a letter or other documentation from your provider that states the date(s) or date range(s) that you were under medical care and unable to attend class. Medical supervision is retroactive, so if you have provider notes excusing you for past dates, you can still submit them to our office.
ASC will send emails to your professors excusing your absences for those dates. Documentation can be faxed or emailed to our office. Notes on script pads and photos of documentation are not acceptable.
Students do not need to be registered with ASC to receive medical supervision.
Students who suffer concussions are eligible for temporary accommodations. If you have a concussion, please call the ASC. A letter or other medical documentation that states your diagnosis and the date of injury should be faxed or emailed to our office. Notes on script pads and photos of documentation are not acceptable. When the documentation is received, you will have a brief, same-day appointment with an Accessibility Specialist.
Students do not need to be registered with ASC to receive temporary accommodations for a concussion.
- A letter from a medical doctor or health provider;
- Individual Education Plan (IEP) with Multidisciplinary Team Report (MDT);
- 504 Plan; or,

Any form of documentation your provider must include your diagnosis, functional limitations, and recommendations for accommodation. Documentation can be faxed or emailed to our office. Notes on script pads and photos of documentation are not acceptable.
In addition to providing documentation as described above, students requesting accommodations should complete the Student Intake Packet (link below.) You may feel that some of these forms won’t apply to your situation, but all students are required to complete them regardless.
Please note that accommodations are not retroactive, so any accommodation plan established now would support you on a going-forward basis only.
All students registered with ASC are expected to abide by the policies and procedures listed below.
Alternate Format Materials
For students who qualify for "E-text" as part of their accommodation plan, please use your individual BookShare account to search for your textbooks in accessible format.
If the texts are not available on BookShare, please use the forms below to request your textbooks. These forms can be faxed or emailed to our office. A copy of your purchase receipts must be included.
To begin the process of establishing housing accommodations, please complete the form below and submit it to ASC, along with documentation of your disability. Documentation can be faxed or emailed to our office. Notes on script pads and photos of documentation are not acceptable.

To begin the assistance animal process, please complete the Assistance Animal Request Form (link below) and submit it to ASC. Documentation of your disability is required and must also be provided to ASC. Documentation may be in the form of:
- A letter from your current treating provider that contains your diagnosis, functional limitations, breed of animal, nexus (relationship) of the animal to the disability, other treatment modalities/measures used to mitigate limitations caused by the impairment, and if the mitigating measures eliminate the substantial limitations; or,
- Your current treating provider can complete and return the Provider Verification Form (link below.)
Whichever method you choose, please give your provider a copy of your completed Assistance Animal Request Form to review. They will need it to complete their part of the process.
After your Assistance Animal Request Form and your documentation of disability are received, the ASC will follow up with the next steps. As stated in the assistance animal policy below, no animal may be kept in university housing at any time prior to the approval of the animal as a reasonable accommodation.
Assistance animals are sometimes also referred to as emotional support animals (ESA).

Documentation can be faxed or emailed to our office. Notes on script pads and photos of documentation are not acceptable.
If your housing lease cancellation is approved, Housing & Residence Life will be notified, and you will be informed via email.
