I had an IEP/504
Plan in high school. Will I receive the same services
and accommodations at UMBC?
While IEPs and 504 Plans do not carry
over to college, UMBC is required to provide you any
reasonable accommodation that is necessary for equal
access to education. A Disability Specialist will
determine which support services you are eligible for
after reviewing all submitted documentation of your
acceptable documentation of a disability?
documentation on a case-by-case basis. However,
acceptable documentation should be current and
reflect the following:
The credentials of the
A specific diagnosis
The diagnostic methodology
The current functional impact
on the individual
The expected progression or
stability of the disability
Current and past
accommodations, services, and/or medications
Recommendations for academic
accommodations and services
provide testing for learning disabilities?
UMBC does not conduct or pay for
testing for learning disabilities and/or attention
deficit disorders. However, we can provide you with a
resource list of local educational testing
How does SSS
receive my class schedule every semester and notify my
instructors of my accommodations?
Each semester, after you have
completed registration for classes you should complete
an accommodation card with your course schedule and
return it to the SSS office located in Math/Psych 213.
Once the card is received letters will be emailed to
each instructor with your current accommodation letter
