DSS is the designated office at Rensselaer that obtains and files disability-related documentation, assesses for eligibility of services, and determines reasonable accommodations in consultation with students.Contact DSS if questions or concerns arise regarding accommodations In order to establish that an individual is covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and to recieve accommodations at Rensselaer, students must submit documentation of a disability.Documentation should demonstrate that the disability limits one or more major life activities and is appropriate to verify eligibility for academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids.Although an IEP or 504 plan is helpful in determining appropriate accommodations, they typically do not include a psychoeducation assessment and, therefore, will not be accepted on their own.Rensselaer does not perform testing of any kind but can provide a list of local agencies to students seeking psychoeducational testing.
