The process below must be completed before the Center for Academic Performance (CAP) can provide services or make recommendations to faculty. On average, the process takes at least two weeks to complete, but if your documentation does not meet all the requirements the process will be delayed.
You may contact CAP to schedule an “Information Meeting” with the Assistant Director, Disability Accommodations. In this meeting, we will discuss your concerns and help you decide if you wish to pursue formal accommodations with our office. We will explain what sort of documentation will be required for your disability. Official accommodations do not begin until the remaining steps of this process are complete. If you already have documentation, you may start the registration process.
1. If you decide to pursue formal accommodations, submit your documentation along with a completed Formal Request For Accommodation Form to the CAP Office in person, by mail or by fax. (Fax #817-735-0263) ATTN: Assistant Director, Disability Accommodations, CAP Office
Documentation is not accepted by email. Please make sure you include your name, student ID number, address and phone number on the documentation.
2. After your documentation is reviewed, you will be contacted by the CAP Office. We will schedule an appointment for you to come to the CAP Office. You will receive written notification of the results of the documentation review. This notification will state whether or not your documentation was sufficient or if more information is required.
3. You must attend your scheduled appointment with the CAP Office before accommodations can become active. At this appointment, if more information is required, you will be given a written statement which will ask specific questions of your medical doctor, or mental health professional. You must submit this updated information in order to proceed.
If your documentation was determined to be sufficient for the CAP Office to provide accommodations, we will work together to create a letter that documents your recommended accommodations. It is the student’s responsibility to pick up the accommodation letters and give them to the designated individuals within your department. Your accommodations begin once your instructors approve the recommended accommodations. Students should schedule a meeting with the course coordinator or instructor to discuss the recommended accommodations. Accommodations are not retroactive and cannot be applied to any previous tests, quizzes, assignments, absences or coursework.
