In order to receive accommodations at the University of the Fraser Valley, students with disabilities must register with the Disability Resource Centre. Documentation of a disability is a crucial step to being registered with the Disability Resource Centre. Please contact a Disability Advisor to discuss documentation requirements and to get answers to any questions that you may have.
Documentation must come from a specialist in the particular field and include:
- Specific diagnosis
- Description of the severity of the disability
- A statement regarding the educational impact of the disability
In most cases, the documentation must be no more than 3 years old. Psycho-Educational Assessments as documentation of a learning disability are generally considered vaild for a period of 5 years.
