How to Document your Disability

Documentation Required for Verification of Disability

In order to receive services at Solano College through Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS), a student must have a verified disability. The professional completing the Verification of Disability (VOD) form, must provide current documentation for review and determination of eligibility by a Solano College DSP Specialist/Counselor. Documentation must be dated within 3 years of the request for accommodations, except in the case of Mobility Impairment and Psychological Disability when documentation must be within 90 days of the student's request for service.
