Disclosing and Documenting a Disability to support a request for Accommodation(s)

Step One: Complete and submit our online Disability Disclosure and Request for Accommodation. Students new to Dickinson should complete this by June 2, 2014.

Step Two: Submit appropriate documentation of your disability. For more specific guidelines on documentation, please refer to the Guidelines for Documenting a Disability, and select the disability (or disabilities) that you are requesting accommodations for.

Documentation and requests should be submitted to Marni Jones, Director of Disability Services, by any one of the following means:

Fax:     717-245-1618
Email:  disabilityservices@dickinson.edu
Mail:   Disability Services, Academic Advising, Dickinson College
           Biddle House, P.O. Box 1773
           Carlisle, PA 17013


Step Three: Director Marni Jones will review your documentation to determine eligibility for any accommodations. Please note that sufficient time is required to review all documentation. It is possible that she will request additional documentation, or seek a consultation with an evaluator before a decision can be made. 

Step Four: Students requesting a Housing Accommodation or Meal Plan Accommodation will additionally need to have their care providers complete the required documentation forms available on those respective pages. 

If you have any questions about the status of your documentation process or about the status of your request for accommodations, please email disabilityservices@dickinson.edu, or call us at 717-245-1734.
