Should I update my documentation prior to enrolling at MSU?

June 29th, 2007

Persons with learning disabilities must provide recent documentation (a suggested guideline for recency is 3 years) including a case history prior to an initial meeting for a needs assessment.

Documentation of a disability must appear on official letterhead from a licensed medical or diagnostic professional and include:

  • a specific statement of the diagnosis
  • area(s) and degree of involvement (mild, moderate, severe)
  • summary of related functional limitations (such as activities affecting the learning process)
  • recommendations for accommodations

For further important details about documentation please refer to Guidelines for Documenting a Learning Disability.
