To request a reasonable accommodation for a disability, including pregnancy-related disabilities, to perform the essential functions of the job, to gain access to the workplace, or to enjoy equal access to benefits and privileges of employment (e.g., trainings, office-sponsored events, travel, etc.), an employee should submit a reasonable-accommodation request. In order to assess any request for a reasonable accommodation, the university may require a written document from a licensed physician or other health care provider certifying the nature and type of physical or mental disability of the employee prior to making any decision regarding the request for reasonable accommodation. For additional information, review the quick reference pocket guide.

The employee must submit the Accommodation Request Online Form to the Accommodation and Accessibility Coordinator in the Office of Equal Opportunity and Compliance (OEOC).

    • If the employee's disability/impairment is not obvious or visible, the individual should submit a completed appropriate medical statement form with your accommodation request. The Accommodation Request Online Form allows for attachments.
