ADA/Medical Accommodations

Indiana 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:

  • Summer Session: April15th
  • Fall Semester: April 15th
  • Spring Semester: December 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

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.
