General Documentation Guidelines

  • Documentation should be appropriate to verify eligibility: include a diagnosis; address functional limitation and/or note the major life activities impacted by the impairment; and support the need for accommodations.
  • An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan created at the high school level does not directly carry over to the post-secondary level. However, it may contain helpful information for the coordinator and should be included, if possible.
  • DATC has the discretion to require additional documentation if needed.
  • Costs incurred for evaluation, assessment, or diagnosis and obtaining documentation is borne by the student. The University is not required to provide evaluation, assessment, or diagnostic resources.
  • For further information on documentation requirements please see the WI Disability Documentation Guide for Post-secondary Education. The guide does not comprise statute, policy, or procedural requirements. Each individual postsecondary institution is responsible for establishing and implementing their acceptable disability documentation criteria and procedures. Generally, postsecondary institutions are requesting disability documentation from an official medical/professional, licensed/certified to diagnose and provide evidence and recommendations for the student’s disability(ies). Examples of medical/professionals that postsecondary institutions are generally currently accepting as qualified to make a diagnosis are: private and educational psychologists, psychiatrists, licensed physicians, other licensed health professionals, such as optometrists, speech/language pathologists, and others. In some cases, the IEP recommendation of the special education category in K-12 will not satisfy this requirement.
  • DATC staff will review any received documentation and respond with next steps, including a request for additional information/documentation or scheduling an intake meeting.
  • DATC staff are glad to meet with students to discuss concerns and procedures at any time. Submission of documentation is not required in order to have an initial consultation.
