Services for Students with Disabilities

Prohibition Against Discrimination on the Basis of Disability

The University of Alaska will provide a learning environment in which no student will be subjected to unlawful discrimination based on disability. No otherwise qualified individual will be denied reasonable access to, participation in, or the benefits of, any program or activity operated by the University of Alaska because of disability. Each qualified student with a disability will be eligible to receive appropriate academic adjustments and programmatic accommodations necessary for the student to access educational opportunities, programs, activities, or services in the most integrated setting possible.

Policy on Documentation of Learning Disabilities

In order to receive appropriate academic support services in the classroom, the student must have a clearly diagnosed and documented learning disability. It is the student's responsibility to secure documentation. The University of Alaska Southeast is not responsible for provision of diagnostic services to prospective or currently enrolled students. Recent and appropriate documentation, which addresses the student’s current level of functioning, is required. Documentation should be from a school psychologist, clinical or educational psychologist, neuropsychological, or other qualified professional who diagnosed the learning disability.
