UMFK provides access to accommodations for students with documented disabilities. Students must apply for accommodations through the Disability Services and Accommodations Office located in the Student Success Center. Student accommodations will vary according to the student's needs that fall under Federal law, the Rehabilitation Act of 1993, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Maine Human Rights Act established the rights of individuals with disabilities.

Steps to Apply

  1. Complete the Student Accommodations Request form
  2. Submit supporting documentation of disability. We encourage the use of the Medical Documentation form. Information needed must include:
    1. Diagnosis with date
    2. Signature of medical provider
    3. Recommendations
  3. Student Rights and Responsibility form
  4. Meet with the Disability Services and Accommodations Coordinator

Please note:

  1. All documentation must be complete and submitted prior to approval.
  2. Accommodations may take up to 14 days for processing and approval.
  3. Emotional Support Animal (ESA) documentation must be completed in full prior to the proposed arrival to campus.
  4. Accommodations can never fundamentally alter essential course requirements as determined by the course instructor.
    1. Essential requirements are the outcomes (including skills, knowledge, and attitudes) all students must demonstrate with or without using accommodations.
