ADA/Medical Accomodations

ADA/MEDICAL ACCOMODATIONS FORM

ndiana State University provides a climate of equal opportunity to all of its programs, activities, and services, and is in full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. To this end, Indiana State provides accessible housing for students with disabilities as defined by these laws. To qualify for protection under these laws, the student must provide documentation from a qualified examiner that substantiates that the student has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity and that the requested accommodation is necessary to afford the student equal access.

To be considered for a special accommodation, the student should complete the medical documentation request form. The documentation must be received on or before the following dates per the semester for which the request is made:

Accommodation Form Due Dates

  Returning Students Freshman/Transfer Students
Summer Session April 30th April 30th
Fall Semester April 15th June 30th
Spring Semester November 1st November 1st

To make a reasonable accommodation for the student’s need, there may be certain situations where housing preferences (such as area or roommate requests) cannot be honored. Students submitting special accommodation requests after the dates indicated above will be accommodated as quickly as possible, when acceptable space can be determined. If a student is offered a change to the housing environment, an additional cost may be associated with the resulting assignment or requests. Any reasonable accommodation is considered, but the student must support the accommodation request with a documented need linked to the student's disabling condition. The reasonable accommodation takes effect once the determination is made, based on space available. Paperwork cannot be submitted for advance assignment.

All students requesting a medical documentation must submit the following form: application-pdf.png ADA Documentation Form

Temporary Medical Conditions

If a student is experiencing a temporary medical condition that affects the student's mobility, the Office of Residential Life should be contacted to discuss possible room options for a room reassignment if space is available.

EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMAL GUIDELINES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Office of Residential Life

Indiana State University
Revised February 2016

Indiana State University, Office of Residential Life is committed to reasonably accommodate persons who require the assistance of an emotional support animal. However, Residential Life is also mindful of the health and safety concerns of the campus community. With respect to a request for an assistance animal, the Office of Residential Life will determine, on a case by case basis, and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, whether such animal is a reasonable accommodation on campus.  Thus, Residential Life must balance the need of the individual with the disability with the potential impact of animals on other campus patrons.  Successful implementation of the policy requires the cooperation of all students, faculty, and staff.

For students seeking reasonable accommodation, an accommodation review process will be undertaken and may involve additional conversations between the Office of Residential Life and the requesting student.  The student must notify the Office of Residential Life in writing at least thirty (30) business days prior to the desired move-in date or during the semester, at least thirty (30) business days prior to the desired arrival of an approved animal.  If all other criteria are met, a meeting will be arranged between the student and Residential Life to discuss how to best accommodate the student, the companion animal, and the campus community. 

Please read and complete the document below and return to Residential Life.

University Housing Policy and Exemptions

475.1 First Year Student Housing Requirements

All single first year students (less than 32 earned academic hours) to live in University residence halls unless they commute from their parent's home (60 miles one way) or have a valid exception. Students of first year standing who have lived in University residence halls for two semesters would be exempt from this policy.

This policy can be found in the Policy Library, linked below:

https://www.indstate.edu/policy-library/first-year-housing

Exemption Process

Exceptions to the residency policy may be granted only under certain limited conditions, including the following:

  • The Vice President for Student Affairs determines the policy shall be suspended and not enforced for that particular semester due to lack of space availability
  • Students residing at parents’/legal guardian’s permanent address, which must be located within 60 miles of campus as measured by Google.com (“Legal Guardian” means a person appointed guardian by a court of competent jurisdiction to act on behalf of the student in place of parents.  Legal documentation may be requested for verification)
  • Part-time student taking fewer than 12 hours during either a Fall or Spring semester
  • Students taking only online classes
  • Students who are a veteran of the US Armed Forces who served on active duty for at least one year
  • Students who are married and/or have dependent children (under the age of 18)
  • Students with specific medical/psychological/psychiatric needs which require special accommodations that cannot be accommodated in University-owned or University-operated housing
  • Students with certain criminal or disciplinary backgrounds making community living an inappropriate choice
  • An approved exception due to unforeseen, catastrophic, or financial hardship as determined by the Executive Director, Residential Life
  • International students
  • Students who have completed at least 30 earned academic credit hours accepted by the University toward a degree at the University (not inclusive of dual-credit earned as part of a high school curriculum)
  • Students having lived in university housing for at least two semesters
  • Students who are at least 21 years of age at the start of the term.

Exemptions must be requested through the student's housing portal.  From your MyISU portal, select the housing portal, then select "Apply" and select the term you are requesting.  In the Housing Intent page select Apply for Exemption and follow the prompts on the pages.

Break Housing Contracts

First-year students requiring the ability to stay on-campus during break periods (Thanksgiving, Semester Break, and Spring Break) should consider requesting a break access contract. Students selecting the break access contract have the ability to remain in their personal residence hall room during break periods. Students selecting a break access housing contract are charged an additional $400/semester which covers the cost of all breaks. This cost is for the privilege of remaining in their room over the break period and is not available to be refunded if the student does not stay for the entire break period.

Students who do not select the break housing contract are able to request a "walk in" break housing option and the cost of $20 a night. Walk-in break housing accomodations change by year, and are communicated to students before the break period starts.  Typically students are moved to one of our four units in the University Apartments to allow students access to a kitchen.

Returning students who require housing during the break periods should self-select University Apartments or 500 Wabash as these upper-class living options are open during break shut-down periods.

Housing Contract Release

Students may use this form to request a contract realese, or contract buyout if they are exempt from the housing policy.

CONTRACT RELEASE/BUYOUT FORM

Contract Release
Students should be advised that contract releases are granted only in situations involving extreme or unusual circumstances beyond the student’s control, the nature of which would prohibit living in a residence hall or impose a severe hardship.

Contract Buyout
This option is only available to students who are exempt from the University Housing Policy. The student can request be automatically released from the contract by buying out the remaining portions of the contract. The buyout rate is sixty five percent (65%) of the remaining contract. Due to the first year live in requirement, Freshman are not eligible for a contract buyout.

**Buyout requests submitted after October 15th will be subject to 65% of the remaining fall contract, as well as 65% of the spring contract**
