How to Receive Special Accommodations for a Disability


If a student suspects that s/he has a disability that is impacting his/her academic performance, the student will need to provide the Director of Counseling and Disability Services with a Registration Form (Appendix A)  and  appropriate documentation of that disability from a qualified professional.  An appointment should be scheduled with the Director of Counseling and Disability Services in order to review the documentation and determine what academic adjustments may be appropriate.  Once the appropriate accommodations have been determined, Academic Accommodation Forms (Appendix B) will be completed for the student by the Director of Counseling and Disability Services.  These forms are due back to the Director of Counseling and Disability Services within ten working days.

 

Cumberland University does not diagnose disabilities. However, students can contact the office for help in obtaining a referral to a qualified professional in our community.

 

Following the original registration process with the Director of Counseling and Disability Services, it is the responsibility of each student to notify the Director of Counseling and Disability Services at the beginning of each semester that they need Academic Accommodations Forms for their classes.
