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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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
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:
• Autism Spectrum Disorder Documentation Policy
• Attention-Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder Documentation Policy
• 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Note: Documentation that is incomplete, outdated, or missing information may delay the approval of academic accommodations.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.
