Eligibility Verification

Eligibility for Accessibility Services at the College of Saint Elizabeth is dependent upon the nature of the disability and its impact on learning. A person might meet eligibility requirements of vocational rehabilitation, disabled veterans or any other rehabilitation agency; however, they may not meet eligibility at the College of Saint Elizabeth.

One of the reasons that the College has developed these guidelines is to ensure consistency throughout the institution. These guidelines are consistent with those used by agencies administering standardized assessments (see Compliance Statement).

The ultimate decision for eligibility on campus is a judgment that must be made by the Coordinator of Accessibility Services based upon the guidelines developed for each type of disability. Once a student has been verified as disabled by the College of Saint Elizabeth Office of Accessibility Services, a disability eligibility form should be completed and placed in a confidential file with the determining documentation.
