Eligibility

Services and accommodations are available at no cost to all eligible Northern Arizona University students. In order to be eligible for services or accommodations through Disability Resources, you must:

  • be admitted to Northern Arizona University and be enrolled for the semester for which you are requesting services or accommodations
  • have a disability that substantially limits one or more major life activity, that includes but is not limited to walking, talking, learning, hearing, or seeing
  • have and provide current and appropriate documentation of such a disability from a properly credentialed professional
  • ensure you are registered with Disability Resources at the beginning of each semester to avoid any delay in your services or accommodations

For specific eligibility criteria, please refer to our documentation guidance.

Evaluation of eligibility

Within four weeks of receiving your documentation, a letter will be mailed to you regarding your eligibility status with further instructions.

Considering the length of time it may take to complete an interactive interview, and the documentation, you are strongly encouraged to request accommodations as early as possible prior to attending Northern Arizona University to ensure they are available the first day of the semester.

As a service to prospective Northern Arizona University students, Disability Resources will review disability related documentation regardless of a prospective student’s admission status.

All information submitted to Northern Arizona University’s Disability Resources becomes part of a student’s “educational record” as defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

The information contained from your interview and in the documentation will be used to determine eligibility. Appropriate accommodations will be based upon your disability and individual needs.
