Request Process & Documentation Needs

  1. Employee request and documentation: Employees should complete the Disability Disclosure Intake Form. The employee will be contacted to discuss the request for accommodations and potential need for disability documentation. Service Animal (defined by the ADA) only requests do not have to submit disability documentation unless specifically requested. For assistance animal accommodations within University Housing additional requirements are needed.

  2. Eligibility: The ADA/504 Coordinator will engage in an interactive process with the supervisor and the employee to determine essential job functions and reasonable accommodations.

  3. Implementation: Upon completion of the interactive process, the ADA/504 Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that approved accommodations are understood and implemented in a timely manner.
