Applicants requesting special consideration for admission due to a disability must provide appropriate documentation of the disability during the application process. Documentation must be provided by a professional and must have been completed within the last five years. The documentation should explain the disability and its connection to the request for special consideration (i.e. entrance exam scores, GPA, etc.). The Office of Adaptive Services will review the petition and all accompanying documentation and will offer an opinion to the graduate program to which the applicant has applied. It is left to the discretion of the individual graduate program whether to grant the applicant special consideration for the disability. The final decision will be made by the graduate program in question.
