How to apply for and access disability services.

The information found on this page will help all students who are new to requesting accommodations at Regis University navigate the process of registering with the Student Disability Services & University Testing (SDS/UT). Whether you are coming to the SDS/UT office as an incoming freshman, a transfer student, an adult learner, or even as an upperclassman who is applying for disability services for the first time, we hope that the information found on this page will answer your questions.  While this page may also be of interest to parents, the content will be focused on the students since they are ultimately responsible for managing their accommodations.

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Apply for Accommodations

Step 1: Complete Application

Students requesting reasonable accommodations must complete an application, submit documentation of a disabling condition, and participate in an intake appointment. It is strongly recommended that students complete the application as early as possible.

Follow this link to complete the online application for services: Application for Accommodations

If you also require special housing accommodations such as a single room, you must also complete a  Special Room Request Form and submit supporting documentation from a qualified, impartial, licensed physician or mental health professional to Student Disability Services & University Testing. You can send documentation by fax at 303.964.6595 or by email at disability@regis.edu

Step 2: Submit Documentation 

After you complete the online application, you will submit documentation to Student Disability Services & University Testing: 

You can mail, fax, email, or bring documentation to:

Student Disability Services & University Testing 
3333 Regis Boulevard, G-18
Denver, CO 80221-1099
Email: disability@regis.edu
Fax: 303-964-6595 

We recommend that documentation meets the following requirements: 

• It clearly states the diagnosed disability or disabilities
• It describes how the diagnosis was made
• It is provided by a qualified, licensed professional (medical doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, school psychologist)
• It is current and relevant
• It includes types of accommodations which may be beneficial in an academic setting

If you need information, the below links provide more detailed documentation guidance by disability type:

Blindness/Low Vision Documentation Policy  
Deaf/Hard of Hearing Documentation Policy
Food Allergy Policy
Head Injury/Traumatic Brain Injury Documentation Policy
Learning Disability Documentation Policy
Psychological or Psychiatric Disabilities Documentation Policy  
Physical Disabilities and Chronic Illness Documentation Policy


Once documentation is submitted, SDS/UT will review documentation generally within seven – ten business days. Once complete, student will be notified via Regis email or letter to home address on file.

Note: Documentation that is incomplete, outdated, or missing information may delay the approval of academic accommodations.

Step 3: Schedule an Intake Appointment

Once students have been notified their documentation has been reviewed, the student must schedule an intake appointment to discuss accommodations, procedures and services. Student questions and concerns may be discussed and letters of Accommodation (LOAs) may be sent to faculty at this time. LOAs notify faculty which academic accommodations a student is approved for and has requested for this course.

To schedule an intake appointment, please contact us at 303.458.4941. 

Step 4: Request Accommodations Each Term/Semester

Students MUST meet with SDS/UT staff to request their academic accommodations each new term/semester. LOAs are sent out for new courses only after the student meets with SDS/UT staff to make the request. Approved academic accommodations (extended test time, note taker assistance, BAFs, etc.) are not “active” until student meets with SDS/UT.

Note: New documentation DOES NOT need to be submitted each term/semester. Once students are approved for academic accommodations they are approved for their time at Regis University. New documentation would only need to be submitted to SDS/UT if the student is requesting new/additional academic accommodations that are not supported by the current documentation on file. Please contact SDS/UT staff with any questions.
