AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT AMENDMENTS ACT The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) requires the provision of "reasonable accommodations" to those qualified individuals with disabilities by providing equal, non-discriminatory program access in the academic setting. Students need to take the verifying documentation to the Dean of Students Office, where it will be kept confidential and private to the extent possible. In most cases, verifying documents can be obtained from doctors, licensed psychologists or other professionals licensed to determine the existence, severity of and characteristics of the disability or disabilities. This documentation should include the functional impact of the disability or disabilities. It is the student's responsibility to request documentation from such professionals, and to request a record of accommodations received at any other educational institution. Appropriate documentation for learning disabilities should be provided. If accommodations are needed by the student, the student should provide the information and documentation in a reasonably early manner after admission to allow time for the development and arrangement of appropriate accommodations. In some cases, as when books on tape or sign language interpreters need to be requested, documentation should be provided several weeks prior to the beginning of the semester so accommodation arrangements can be made in a timely manner. A copy of Southwestern Oklahoma State University's documentation guidelines are on the Dean of Students’ website or office, room 214, Gen. Thomas P. Stafford Center, (580) 774-3767.
Please note: Students should be admitted to SWOSU before seeking accommodations from the Dean of Students.
