Eligibility must first be determined in order to make arrangements for using services and accommodations from Disability Services. Providing current documentation that establishes a disability is the responsibility of the student.
INCOMING FRESHMEN: Contact Disability Services after acceptance to JMU in order to determine what documentation is necessary to determine eligibility for services. It is preferred that the student meet with the Coordinator prior to summer orientation in order to complete the following:
Please contact Disability Services prior to, or as early in the semester as possible and provide appropriate documentation of your disability. After appropriate documentation is received, student information will be gathered and confidentiality will be discussed. Disability Service Staff will then determine, with the student's input, what services and accommodations are needed. Accommodations are based on the currency, depth and breadth of documentation, along with the student's input.
