Applying for Services

Students will schedule an Access Meeting with the Interim Manager of Accessibility & Student Support Services, Student Accessibility Services. Through this interactive process the student will have a detailed discussion with Student Accessibility Services on how the student’s accessibility needs impacts them in the classroom and within campus facilities.

Students will need to submit the Accommodation Application prior to the Access Meeting. Students must also provide diagnostic documentation of their accessibility need, disability, diagnosis, or condition. Depending on the individual’s accessibility need, documentation can be submitted from a medical doctor, psychologist, psychiatrist, neuropsychologist, school psychologist or other professional diagnostician. Students are encouraged to contact Student Accessibility Services if they are having trouble acquiring documentation. If a disability is apparent and the need for accommodations can be easily established, documentation may not be needed.

Once all the information has been received, accommodations will be determined for the student during their time at Cascadia.
