In order to determine eligibility for, and to receive, accommodative services you

Complete an intake packet during your appointment.
Obtain and bring an audiogram or any other documentation. It is the student’s responsibility

the time of appointment or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. It may also be faxed to 801-863-8377.
Documentation should be from a licensed professional (i.e. a medical doctor or audiologist).
