Recognition as student with disability

How to initiate recognition and consideration as a student with a disability



F. Eugene Romano Hall at UCStudents should:
  • Refer themselves, by personal contact, to the Director of Learning Services
  • Self-disclose their disability
  • Submit documentation to verify eligibility under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Protection under these civil rights statutes is determined on a case-by-case basis and is based upon documentation of a disability that currently substantially limits some major life activity.
  • Request accommodations
  • Follow Utica College procedures as described in the Student Handbook.

Protection under these civil rights statutes is determined on a case-by-case basis and is based upon documentation of a disability that currently substantially limits some major life activity. Documentation guidelines should be requested from the Office of Learning Services.

When to disclose your disability

Students who are applying to Utica College are strongly advised to contact the Director of Learning Services as soon as they decide to attend Utica College so that they can submit required documentation in a timely fashion if they plan to request accommodations. This contact will also allow the Director to answer any questions that the student might have.

Students who are already attending Utica College may contact the Director of Learning Services whenever they determine a need for assistance.
