Delivering the help you deserve

UT Permian Basin provides access to programs, classes, services, and activities to qualified individuals with disabilities—as required by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the ADA.

If you’re a student with a disability, visit the Office of ADA for Students to learn about the wide range of accommodations we can make (including adjustments to the classroom experience).

Required Documentation

All disability documentation must be on letterhead signed by an appropriate licensed education, mental health, or medical professional who is certified or a licensed practitioner in the area where the diagnosis is made. (Note: Documentation presented on a prescription pad is unlikely to be sufficient.)

All documentation should provide the following:

  • Date of the evaluation
  • Method of evaluation/examination
  • Specific diagnosis
  • Medication - expected effects on functioning, and any side effects
  • Listing and discussion of specific limitations with respect to the disability's impact in academic and academic-related environments as it relates to the accommodations requested.

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

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 requesting accommodations in the classroom will be provided with a letter prepared by the Office of ADA for Students verifying the need for accommodations to each of their instructors.

Accommodations

If a student is eligible to receive accommodations, they will be determined on a case-by-case basis. We will consider documentation, the student's history, specific functional limitations, and other information.

Students approved to receive accommodations in the classroom will be provided a letter prepared by the Office of ADA for Students. The letter lists the approved accommodations. The student should present it to all instructors.

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.
