Requirements for Disability Documentation & Short Term/Temporary Accommodations

Students requesting accommodations at RUSH University must submit documentation of their disability. Eligibility for services and reasonable accommodations are determined holistically in light of disability documentation, student report of how their condition impacts them, perceived need for accommodations, history of accommodations (if any) and program requirements including technical standards. Lack of accommodations history or specific documentation should not prevent a student from making a request for accommodations

Please review the requirements listed below, the Office of Student Accessibility Services may request additional documentation to support an accommodation request if needed. Practitioners may also complete the Clinician Documentation Form that will be sent directly to the Director of Student Accessibility Services. The Office of Student Accessibility Services does not provide diagnostic services, students are responsible for providing their own documentation for review.
