Barry University Disability Documentation Guidelines
You should contact the Office of Disability Services as soon as possible before the beginning of the semester to ensure timely accommodations. First, proper documentation must be submitted to the Office of Disability Services. To be eligible for accommodations, you must provide appropriate documentation of each disability that demonstrates an accompanying substantial limitation to one or more major life activities. Secondly, we will meet to discuss necessary accommodations during an intake interview during which time we review the Disability Services Guidebook and assist in arranging accommodations with you.
The following guidelines are provided in the interest of assuring that the professionals' statement is appropriate to document eligibility for support services. The Office of Disability Services reserves the right to use discretion in awarding accommodations.
