**Obtaining Your Disability Documentation

Students are required to submit all necessary information and documentation prior to scheduling an intake appointment.

You may either use our verification of disability form or request documentation, such as an IEP or psychoeducational evaluation from your school district or school psychologist. A letter from a doctor, psychiatrist, therapist, social worker, etc. may also be accceptable pending on review.

Disability documentation may have been sufficient to establish eligibility for reasonable accommodations at other institutions, such as high schools or community colleges, but may not automatically transfer and may need updating before establishing accommodation eligibility at Foothill College.

You may NOT NEED TO SUBMIT disability documentation IF your disability and accommodation requests can be verified by observation (e.g., wheelchair user, hearing aid, etc.)

If you have any questions regarding disability documentation, feel free to contact our Accommodations Coordinator, Michelle Lapitan, at

Schedule Intake Appointment with DRC Counselor

After the above steps are completed, your application and documents will be reviewed within 3 business days.

Once the review is complete, you will be contacted by our DRC staff by phone or email to schedule your intake appointment with a DRC counselor.

Current intake appointments are via Zoom or Phone.
