An incoming student with a diagnosed psychiatric disorder for which she requires accommodations may identify herself to AccessAbility Services and the Director of the Counseling Service.
In making requests for accommodations based on a psychiatric disability, a student must first complete the confidential disability registration form found on my.mtholyoke.edu. The second requirement is the Clinician Disability Certification Form documenting her psychiatric diagnosis and recommendationsfor accommodations. This certification form will need to be completed by her clinician. Reasonable accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis.
Treatment and assistance for students with psychiatric disabilities are offered by the staff of the Counseling Service. Students are encouraged to make an appointment with Counseling Services as soon as possible after they arrive on campus.
