Verification Process

STEP 1-Students must be admitted to The University of Arkansas Pine Bluff before the verification process can begin. For information about admissions, please contact the Admissions Office at (870) 575-8017 or visit their web-page by clicking on the link.

STEP 2- Students must complete and sign a Student Request for Reasonable Accommodations/Modifications Intake Application. This application is completed to allow the student to self-disclose a disorder or impairment and request accommodations. We cannot review any documentation submitted without having a completed and signed intake application on file. Submission of an intake application does not guarantee a determination of eligibility.

STEP 3- Students must submit documentation from a licensed healthcare professional which clearly states a diagnosis, details the student’s CURRENT functioning, and supports any requests for accommodations. Documentation must also include recommendations for reasonable classroom accommodations.

STEP 4- Within ten working days of our receipt of both the intake application and the documentation, students will receive an initial status report from this office informing them that they have been verified, that we need more information or that they have been denied.

STEP 5- To complete the verification process, students will then meet with the disability specialist in order to confirm accommodations, complete the final paperwork and arrange classroom accommodations.
