  1. If the student enters Point University later than the 30 days prior to the beginning of the academic term, or waits to report the need for disability services during that term, the student must contact the director of disability services immediately, understanding the process will take a little time to complete.
  1. The disability services director will engage in an interactive process with the student, which requires completion of an application for disability services and formal requests for documentation. The process will include consideration of any recommended reasonable accommodation that would enable the student to have an equal opportunity to benefit from the academic program.
  1. Once evaluation of documentation is complete, the student will receive a Point University Accommodation Plan in writing. Accommodations are not retroactive and provision of accommodations by another institution does not guarantee eligibility at Point University.
