Students must request accommodations and disclose his/her disability before any accommodation can be implemented. Students with disabilities who need accommodations are encouraged to identify themselves and submit a request via their academic advisor. In most cases, students will need to provide appropriate documentation of disability and/or information related to the student’s disability or functional limitations that substantiates requests for services. The Iliff School of Theology holds these requests and information private, and are not included in your academic records.
The Disability Services Team attempts to review requests and set up a meeting with the student within two weeks of receipt. Please review the Master Student Handbook for information regarding disability services at Iliff.
Documentation must be current and must be from an appropriate professional, such as a physician, psychologist, LD/ADHD specialist, or other qualified professional. Appropriateness of documentation will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Documentation should, at a minimum, include the presenting problem and relevant history, information on current limitations and how these relate to the educational environment, and suggested educational accommodations with rationale for recommendations. If the submitted documentation is incomplete or does not support the student’s request for accommodations and/or services, the student may be asked to provide additional documentation. For example, an Individualized Education Plan, 504 Plan, or Summary of Performance from a previous academic institution without supporting information generally is not considered to be sufficient documentation. The cost of obtaining all documentation is borne by the student.
Documentation can be delivered by the student or can be sent directly to:

At the discretion of the School, provisional accommodations may be made prior to the receipt of appropriate documentation.
