Documentation Guidelines

Documentation is used to verify the nature and extent of the disability in regards to the university environment.  Documentation is not required until the student requests accommodations.  However, early submission may help in a smooth transition to college and is always welcomed.

Types of documentation

Although the type of disability documentation needed will be discussed during the initial meeting, any information that can be provided prior to the first meeting may be helpful, such as:

  • IEP/504 plans
  • recent evaluations
  • letters from doctors
  • hospital reports
  • Disability Verification Form

Submitting documentation

Documentation can be submitted in the following ways:

  • drop it off
  • mail it in
  • email it
  • or fax it

Personal disability information is not denoted on academic transcripts and should not be shared with others without the student’s permission. There are limited circumstances when information may be shared on a need-to-know basis.

These guidelines are for Kansas State University.  Student confidentiality policy is found on the Office of the Registrar's website.  Documentation policies of other institutions or agencies may be different.
