York College is committed to ensuring all students have equal access to the campus, course content, and programming. Documentation guidelines are provided to assist students with disabilities and medical professionals with providing the type of information and documentation needed to determine if students meet the eligibility criteria for reasonable and appropriate accommodations for a higher education environment.
A clinical diagnosis alone does not establish a need or eligibility for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. York College requires greater information regarding the functional limitations in major life activities to substantiate a disabling condition.
Students and their medical professionals should use the guidelines outlined on this page to inform the selection of documentation in support of an accommodation request. All documentation will be reviewed by Student Accessibility Services and accommodations are determined using an individualized, interactive process with each student.
