Student Accessibility Services

  • Documentation Guidelines

    To ensure Worcester State University provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations and services to students with disabilities, students are required to register with Student Accessibility Services. Students should provide documentation that demonstrates limitations to one or more major life activities as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    In general, the documentation must be on letter head from a licensed professional and include the diagnosis and the impact of the diagnosis both in everyday life and the academic environment.

    It is at the discretion of Student Accessibility Services to determine reasonable accommodations which do not impact the essential functions of a course or degree program.

    To help ensure students submit appropriate documentation, a check list and guidelines are provided below.
