Interactive Registration

All accommodations provided on the basis of disability must be provided by or in consultation with Disability Services to establish consistency of practice and proper documentation of services.

Step 1: The student completes the Registration Form and submits documentation (upload, email, fax or hand deliver) in accordance with the Disability Documentation Guidelines.

Step 2: Following documentation review, Disability Services reaches out to the student via email to schedule an intake meeting via Zoom, phone, or in-person.

Step 3: Following documentation review, an intake meeting, and clinician consultation (when necessary and with approval), Disability Services emails the student regarding approved reasonable accommodations. A student who disagrees with an accommodation determination may appeal as outlined in the Policy for Requesting Accommodations at the Law Center.

Housing

The Gewirz Student Center includes on-campus apartments with a range of accessibility features. Students requesting accommodations for housing must complete the Registration Form and submit documentation prior to the housing selection process. Requests approved after the housing lottery will be honored subject to available space and resources.

Temporary Disabilities

Students with temporary conditions (e.g., broken limbs, injuries, concussions) are encouraged to complete the Registration Form and submit documentation from a treating physician that includes a diagnosis, severity, functional limitations, prognosis, and estimated duration. Disability Services will reach out via email to schedule a meeting to discuss reasonable accommodations.

Disability Disclosure

In cases where a faculty member must be made aware of classroom accommodations, the student will be consulted first and the minimum amount of information will be shared in order to identify or implement a reasonable accommodation. Disability Services is available to address faculty questions about Law Center policies and services and to consult on disability-related issues.
