Required Documentation

Documentation consisting of an evaluation by an appropriate professional that relates the current impact of a disability condition must be provided to the Office of ADA for Students. The diagnostician must be an impartial individual who is not a family member of the student. This licensed provider should be licensed/practicing in this state and have a pre-existing practitioner/patient relationship with the patient established in accordance with Texas Medical Board rules.  Out of state documentation will be accepted in accordance with the primary residence of the student.  

Documentation should include:

  • A diagnostic statement on letterhead (not prescription pad) with the date of the most recent evaluation;
  • The current impact of (or limitations imposed by) and expected duration, stability or progression of the condition;
  • Treatments, emergency medications, devices or services currently prescribed or used to mitigate the impact of the condition; and
  • Completion of the Recommended Educational Accommodations Form provided.

Documentation should not be more than five (5) years old.

Students seeking ESA or other housing accommodations will receive additional documentation for completion.  Students with Trained Service Animals (TSA’s) are required to provide a completed Housing Accommodation Application and up to date health and vaccination records (only) for his/her TSA.


Students who provide all documentation and are eligible for services will be formally approved during an intake interview with the disability services office. Accommodations will be determined on a case-by-case basis, based on the documentation, the student's history, and specific functional limitations.

Students approved to receive accommodations in the classroom will have a Letter Of Accommodation (LOA), prepared by the Office of ADA for Students, sent to the student’s semester course Instructors.  In addition, the student will receive a personal copy for his/her records.

Depending on the situation, the following accommodations may be available:

  • Notetakers
  • Extra time for testing
  • Isolated testing rooms
  • Enlarged print on computers

If you need other accommodations, please consult with the Office of ADA for Students.
