The Center for Student Accommodations at Manhattanville College works to provide reasonable accommodations and support services to students with disabilities in compliance with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Amendments Act (ADAAA), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. In order to receive a documentation review and put accommodations in place, students are required to self-disclose to the Center for Student Accommodations.
Students diagnosed with a disability that request services or reasonable accommodations must provide appropriate and current documentation. These services and accommodations will be determined on an individual basis, based upon documentation review and an in person intake interview with the Director or Assistant Director of the Center for Student Accommodations. During this intake, the student will have the opportunity to share his/her academic history and to request specific accommodations. Students may be asked to obtain updated documentation if no recent documentation exists. Disabilities change over time and documentation should support current needs.
Intake interviews can be scheduled via phone or e-mail. Please note that intakes will not be scheduled and documentation will not be accepted or reviewed until the student is enrolled at Manhattanville College.
A qualified professional should conduct the evaluation and provide name, title and professional credentials.
The evaluations should include a diagnostic statement and be signed and dated.
Documentation should include a description of the diagnostic criteria, evaluation methods, procedures, tests and dates of administration, as well as a clinical narrative, observation, and specific results.
Information on how the disability or disabilities currently limits one or more major life activities.
Recommendations of the professional provider will be considered as part of the comprehensive intake process; however, these recommendations do not guarantee the granting of requested accommodations.
