Criteria for Disability Documentation

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and its Amendments Act of 2008 state that qualified students with disabilities who meet the technical and academic standards of Keiser University may be entitled to reasonable accommodations. Under these laws, a disability is defined as any physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. The program for students with disabilities at Keiser University does not provide disability documentation for students. It is a student’s responsibility to provide appropriate documentation and to request adjustments/accommodations. Appropriate documentation should be current, relevant, and meet the following criteria:

Current official letter (on letterhead from a licensed professional, such as treating medical doctor, orthopedic specialist, audiologist, speech pathologist, ophthalmologist, or other appropriate licensed professional; signed and dated) addressing the following aspects:

  • Clearly stating diagnosis
  • Defining levels of function and any limitations on student’s academic performance caused by the disability
  • Stating specific accommodations and educationally relevant recommendations

Include any evaluation material, if appropriate, current, and available.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

  • Defining levels of function and any limitations in all affected areas (communication, vision, hearing, mobility, psychological, seizures, etc.)
  • Stating specific accommodations and educationally relevant recommendations

Include any evaluation material, if appropriate, current, and available.

  • Defining levels of functioning and any limitations on student’s academic; performance caused by the disability, supported by evaluation data
  • Stating specific accommodations and educationally relevant recommendations

Other documentation may be necessary.
