The Center for Access and Accommodations is located in the Student Services Center (SSC) on the College of DuPage campus in Room 3249. Students with disabilities are able to request accommodations by submitting a request form. The following is a list of frequently asked questions regarding Access and Accommodations.
College of DuPage accepts a variety of documentation to qualify students for accommodations. Students who received accommodations during High School can submit their IEP or 504 Plan. The most recent 3-year evaluation is typically the most helpful.
For students who did not have an IEP or 504 plan, documentation can be provided by any health care professional who is qualified to diagnose and/or treat their condition. The professional does not have to specifically be a doctor.
When we review documentation, we are looking for a few things:
- A diagnosis
- Information about how the diagnosis impairs one or more major life activities
- How the disability impacts the individual in an academic setting
It can also be helpful to have the healthcare provider include information about frequency and severity of symptoms, especially if it is a condition that flares up from time to time.
