Whether it is your first time in college or you are transferring here, we want to
help you understand how to use the services that are available in the Accessibility
Services Department (ASD). One of the first questions people have is "What is the
process to obtain services?"
In order to determine eligibility for, and to receive, accommodative services please
follow these steps:
Schedule an Appointment
Schedule an intake appointment to meet with a counselor in the Accessibility Services
Department. This first appointment may take up to an hour.
To schedule an appointment, please call our front desk at 801.863.8747.
Complete an Intake Packet
Intake packets are available on our website under the “Forms” section. Please complete
the intake packet before your appointment or arrive 15 minutes early and the front
desk will provide you with one.
Provide a copy of your documentation. If you are requesting documentation from a licensed
professional (Physician, Psychiatrist, Psychologist, etc.) for the first time, please
make them aware of what to include. The documentation and/or diagnostic evaluation
must be recent and considered current to receive accommodations. Documentation should
include the nature of the disability, the functional limitations, and the educational
impact. An IEP or 504 plan alone may not be sufficient. If you have any questions
about how to obtain documentation, please schedule an appointment to meet with one
of our counselors.
It is important to recognize that there will be a processing period for the documentation
to be reviewed by a counselor. The counselor will determine if the documentation is
sufficient to establish the presence of a disability as defined by and covered by
the ADA. The academic accommodations requested and approved are supported in and by
that documentation. It is your responsibility to meet with your counselor and make
sure that sufficient documentation is provided. Please refer to the documentation
guidelines form for any questions that you or your documentation provider may have.
