Documentation must be provided by a non-FIT associated, qualified professional that is licensed or otherwise properly credentialed in the related field of disability, most often a physician, educational diagnostician, learning disability specialist, or mental health professional. The qualified professional must have a legitimate provider/patient relationship with the individual and generally may not be a relative of the individual requesting the accommodation.
Students should provide:
- A psychoeducational or neuropsychological evaluation accompanied by an IEP/504
***Please note that to complete this request you may need to supply your healthcare provider with a completed copy of the Student Release of Medical Information For Academic Accommodations Form (.pdf) .
