Step 3. Call 202-885-3360 to schedule an appointment with a counselor to discuss your requested accommodations.
If you have a disability that substantially limits one or more major life activities, you may be eligible for disability-related accommodations. To determine eligibility, we will need, from an appropriate, licensed health care professional, comprehensive and relevant documentation that explains the impact of your disability and makes a recommendation for accommodation.
For disabilities including ADHD, autism spectrum, hearing, medical/chronic illness, neurological, physical, psychological, sensory, speech/language, traumatic brain injury, and vision, the Documentation Guidlines for Requesting Disabiity-Related Accommodations describes in detail the information necessary to support a request for academic accommodations. Included with the guidelines is a form that can be used by your provider to assist in making sure we have the information we need to consider the request.
If you wish to request a disability-related accommodation due to a food allergy that substantially limits major life activities, you must follow the ASAC three-step process and meet with Dining Services' licensed, registered dietician. Detailed information about this process and guidelines for the documentation needed to support your request can be found at Food Allergy Accommodations for Students.
Emotional Support / Therapy / Assistance Animals may be approved as a disability-related housing accommodation with appropriate documentation, specifically a letter from a licensed professional who is familiar with your disability and explains why the animal is necessary for you to live in the residence hall. Detailed information about this process and guidelines for the documentation needed to support your request can be found at: Animals on Campus. Documents certifying the animal as an Emotional Support/ Therapy / Assistance Animal are not sufficient to support such requests.
If you use a service animal (a dog or miniature horse trained to perform specific tasks related to your disability), we encourage you to register the presences of your animal, but registering a service animal is not required.
