About Disability Documentation Heading link

Documentation of your disability provides valuable insight into your experience. We ask students to provide documentation to register with the DRC and receive disability-related accommodations.

Documentation is only one piece of the accommodation process — please do not be deterred from starting the intake process because of a lack of documentation. Disability Specialists are happy to meet and consult, or to assist you in collecting documentation if necessary.

Please contact the DRC by phone (312) 413-2183 or ​Schedule a DRC intake appointment via iAdvise as provisional accommodations may be available as you gather new documentation.

Potential Disability Documentation Options:

  • Have a licensed clinical professional complete the DRC’s Disability Verification Form.
  • Use existing documentation such as an IEP/504 plan, Psychological Evaluation or Re-Evaluation, or a note or write-up from your care provider.

Ideal documentation will contain the following information:

  • Current (within the last five years) disability diagnosis from a licensed clinical professional familiar with your history, e.g. a therapist, physician, social worker, or school psychologist.
  • Explanation of how the disability impacts the participation in courses, programs, services, or activities at the University; and
  • Recommendation of accommodation(s).
