For students with physical and sensory disabilities, psychological disabilities, and chronic illnesses:
Contact the Office of Accessibility Services to discuss appropriate documentation specific to your individual needs.
For students with learning disabilities (LD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD):
To ensure the provision of reasonable and appropriate accommodation, test scores must reflect a significant limitation in learning which substantiates requests for accommodations. Those students seeking course accommodations and/or exam modifications must provide the following:
- A written diagnosis from a qualified professional stating the presence of a learning disability (LD) or a written confirmation of early and current impairment including information from a diagnostic interview along with an outline of current presenting problems and how they impact classroom learning (ADD).
- A psychoeducational or neuropsychological evaluation administered by a qualified professional or educational team within the last four to six years immediately prior to Saint Michael's enrollment.
This evaluation must report subtest scores, standard scores, and percentile ranks, and include cognitive and achievement testing.
Note: An IEP or 504 Plan is insufficient material but can be included in the packet of comprehensive information.
