Consultation with Northwestern Home Campus

If AccessibleNU-Q is seeking clarification, the documentation provided may be reviewed by the relevant University agency (such as home campus University Health Service) as determined by the type of documentation provided, for diagnosis of the disabling condition and the resulting functional limitations. In these cases, the University agency would make recommendations for accommodations to AccessibleNU-Q who would then, in conjunction with the student, make the final decisions regarding accommodations and services based on all of the relevant information.
