Providing Documentation

An important step in the accommodations process is providing documentation of your condition. Documentation helps establish the need for accommodations and provides information about the functional impact of your disability. For most conditions, "documentation" can just be a letter from a provider that clearly answers the above points. In some situations we ask for more detailed information in order to determine appropriate accommodations. We will always try to work with what you are readily able to send us, and will only ask for more information if we need it to determine appropriate accommodations or eligibility. Once you submit documentation, an Accessibility Specialist will review your submission and invite you to schedule an appointment to discuss next steps.

Of course, if you have any questions about documentation or the documentation process, we are always here to help, so feel free to reach out at any time to access@brandeis.edu
