Students supply documentation to establish eligibility

University of Alaska Anchorage recognizes the best practices for documentation of disability that have been established by the Association on Higher Education and Disability.

Current diagnostic and evaluative reports completed by a trained professional are required as documentation.

Documentation must:

  • Be on letterhead
  • Be signed by a qualified professional
  • Establish how you are impacted by disability

All evaluations, test results and medical records are confidential and are used for the sole purpose of determining eligibility for accommodations. The nature of the disability or temporary disabling condition is not released to any other party except with the written consent of the student. There is no disclosure to other University personnel.
