Requirements & Registration with the DRC
Staff at the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at the
University of North Florida (UNF) have developed a set of documentation
guideline forms which will assist the staff in identifying appropriate academic
accommodations to registered students. These guidelines provide students,
professional diagnosticians, and service providers with a common understanding
and knowledge base of those components of documentation necessary to validate
the existence of a disability and the need for reasonable accommodations. The
documentation must indicate that the disability substantially limits the
student in some major life activity, including learning.
Providing documentation to the DRC is voluntary,
though students may not receive any accommodations without completing the
registration process with the DRC.
The following documentation forms in Word format are provided in the interest of assuring
that documentation of a disability demonstrates an impact on a major life
activity, is appropriate to verify eligibility, and supports the request for
accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aides. Documentation reports or letters from
licensed providers in the specific disability area of expertise are also
accepted. IEP’s are a valuable resource for information, but cannot be used
as documentation of a disability.
Licensed mental health professionals
Clinical Social Worker
Mental Health Counselor
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
A list of providers not affiliated
with UNF in the Jacksonville area, is available upon request.
The UNF Counseling Center may not
provide this type of documentation required by the DRC.
The DRC will adhere to its
confidentiality policies regarding its responsibility to maintain
confidentiality of the evaluation and will not release any part of the
documentation without the student’s informed consent or under compulsion of
legal process. Students are under the protection of the Privacy Act and need
not disclose any information regarding the nature of their disability to anyone
outside the DRC office.
Once the DRC has received and reviewed the student’s
documentation, the student will be invited to register for services and
accommodations from the DRC. This will be a personal meeting between the
student and DRC staff members. Receipt of accommodations will be based on
recommendations in the documentation and discussion with the student.
