Documentation Guidelines

Recommended by the Wyoming/Colorado Consortium of Support Services for Students with Disabilities

Individuals with disabilities who attend or plan to attend a postsecondary institution in Colorado may need reasonable accommodations, modifications, or auxiliary aids in order to have equal access to the programs and services offered. There are two laws that require postsecondary institutions to provide these services to otherwise qualified students, Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). Students who need accommodations are responsible for requesting these services from and for meeting with the Coordinator at Educational Access Services for the following reasons:

  • To provide documentation that supports the request for services; and
  • To discuss the request, the nature of their disabilities, and past experiences.
