Frequently Asked Questions

Is my disability information confidential? Yes. The documentation you provide remains with the Accessibility Services Office. It is only released to campus officials in relevant, educationally necessary situations. Faculty will not be notified of a student's diagnosis unless the student makes a written request that the office do so. Academic accommodations are not indicated in any way on college transcripts. 

I am a new student, when should I make an appointment with Accessibility Services?  Schedule an appointment as soon as possible by filling out our appointment form, and you will be contacted as soon as possible to set up a welcome meeting.

I do not have documentation, where can I get tested for a disability? This depends on the nature of your disability. If you suspect you have a learning disability or psychiatric disability, you should make an appointment with a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist who performs psychological evaluations. If you have a physical disability you should obtain a medical report from your treating physician. See Documentation Guidelines for more information.

I have documentation from high school, can I use this for Rollins? Yes, as long as the documentation meets the specific documentation guidelines. IEP and 504 Plans, if available, should be submitted along with diagnostic medical documentation.

I have never been diagnosed before. Can the Wellness Center at Rollins provide this documentation? The Wellness Center is an  excellent resource for students in need of mental health counseling and minor medical treatment. While students are encouraged to utilize these services, they do not provide definitive diagnoses, which are required by our office. Students who have never been diagnosed before or need updated documentation can discuss community resources with the Wellness Center for appropriate referrals.
