Disclosure Process

In order for students to receive accommodations, it is required that they self-disclose their disabilities and submit supporting documentation in order to determine eligibility in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the ADAAA.  Below is the disclosure process.  

  1. Register through the use of our Intake Form.
     
  2. Submit comprehensive documentation.  Visit the documentation guidelines section of our website that contains more detailed information.
     
  3. When you are ready to share your supporting documentation with us, please use one of our secure methods. Do not send medical documentation through email as it is not secure.
    • Secure portal by clicking here
      • Use your Moravian log-in information.
      • Click on DocumentsApproved Documents, and Add New.  
      • Give your documentation a label (Example:  Letter from Doctor)
      • Select document type.
      • Choose file(s).
      • Click Submit.
      • Additional Information:
        • You can upload more than one document to the form.
        • Upload your documents in PDF, if possible.  Do not upload multiple, individual JPG files. For example, if your diagnostic report has 12 pages, upload these as one PDF document, not 12 separate JPG files.
        • You will not be able to make changes directly to the form once it has been submitted. Changes and additional accommodation requests should be communicated to the ASC by sending an email to ASC@moravian.edu.
    • Fax to (610) 625-7877
  4. Once we receive the completed intake form and documentation, you will receive confirmation of receipt.
     
  5. Your file will be added to the queue for review.  All requests are reviewed in the order in which they are received.  Allow two weeks for the materials to be reviewed.
     
  6. Our review committee will meet to evaluate your documentation.  
     
  7. After the documentation has been reviewed, we will contact the student using their Moravian email address to schedule an appointment.  
     
  8. Initial appointments will be with the student requesting accommodations and virtual using either Zoom or Google Meet.  
     
  9. During the meeting, you can expect to discuss the following:
    • How your disability impacts you.
    • Reasonable accommodations that you may find helpful based upon your disability-related functional limitations.
    • Services you have used in the past.
    • Support services you might find beneficial.
    • The next steps such as discussing your accommodations with your professors and how to request services from the office. 
  10. Once your accommodations have been sent to your professors, you should schedule a meeting with each professor to discuss how your accommodations will help you in their class.  

Please note:  Accommodations are only approved through the ASC approval process and are not retroactive.
