It is the policy and practice of Samuel Merritt University to create inclusive learning environments. If you know or suspect you have a disability and would like to discuss disability accommodations, please contact the Disability Resource Center for a confidential appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 1: Intake Form
If you have a disability and you would like to request accommodations, please complete the online Intake Form.
Step 2: Upload documentation
All disabilities must be documented by a medical, health, learning disability, or mental health professional. Blank documentation forms are available here:
- Verification of AD/HD or ADD
- Verification of psychological disabilities
- Verification of physical, sensory, or chronic health disabilities
- To verify learning disabilities, you should provide a copy of your evaluation report, which should be less than five years old, preferably within the last three years.
Once you have completed your Intake form, you will be given the opportunity to upload your verification form(s), LD evaluation report, and/or other medical documentation to the DRC website. This documentation will be treated confidentially and kept within the DRC office.
Step 3: Make an appointment with Elisa.
In a private appointment with the Director of the Disability Resource Center, we will discuss your academic history, how your disability affects you in various academic settings, and possible accommodations. Once appropriate accommodations are agreed upon, they will be put into writing and implemented.
