Requesting Accommodations

UNC Charlotte students who need accommodations first need to submit appropriate documentation of their disability to our office for review. The list below will help guide you:

  1. Most students need their treating health care provider to complete the Disability Documentation Form.
  2. Students with learning disabilities should submit the most recent full-scale psycho-educational evaluation supporting their diagnosis.
  3. Students requesting housing accommodations need their treating health care provider to complete both the Disability Documentation Form and the Housing and Meal Plan Addendum.
