Disability Documentation Requirements
No third party information may be necessary to confirm disability or evaluate requests for accommodations when the condition and its impact are readily apparent or comprehensively described.
However, if the student is unable to clearly describe how the disability is connected to a barrier and how the accommodation would provide access, the institution may need to request third party documentation focused on illustrating that connection.
When there is not adequate information to make a decision, additional documentation that is specifically tailored to the students functional limitation will be requested. (Ahead Documentation Guidance)
