Documentation Guidelines for Housing Accommodations

All documentation must be submitted on letterhead and include a signature from the treating professional health care provider. Students are encouraged to share the documentation guidelines with their treating health care professional. Documentation must address the following:

  • Licensure and experience of health care professional
  • Identification of diagnosis/condition
  • Description of the functional limitation(s) as a result of the condition
  • Discussion of the major life activities impaired by the condition
  • How the condition/limitations impact full participation and/or accessibility of any aspect of the college experience, specifically residential and/or academic environment
  • List of all recommended accommodations that will ameliorate the experience of the limitation(s) such that the student will be able to fully access and/or participate in all aspects of the academic or residential life programs

Evaluation Process

Requests for housing accommodations will be reviewed by a committee. Decisions will be sent electronically to the Scripps email account. Additionally, the student will be notified if more information is needed to make a decision on a request.
Residential Life staff will work to facilitate access to appropriate housing accommodations as quickly as possible. All approved housing accommodation will be reflected in the student’s assigned housing for the semester.

Meals Accommodations Request Process

Scripps College requires that all students living in Scripps supported housing purchase a meal plan. However, students with specific dietary needs may request an adjustment to their meal plan.

To request an adjustment to your meal plan:

Complete the Disability Support Form and provide supporting documentation. Completed applications and documentation will be reviewed by the Disability Support Services staff; in some instances, students may be required to meet with DSS and Residential Life staff prior to meal accommodations being provided.
