UCD requires evidence of a disability to support the provision of any reasonable accommodations in College. Students who do not have appropriate evidence of their disability should forward the ‘Evidence of Disability Form’ to their Medical Consultant / Specialist to be completed. General Practitioner (GP) letters will not be accepted as suitable medical evidence.
Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (e.g. dyslexia) should provide a copy of their most recent Educational Psychology Report clearly stating that the student has a Specific Learning Difficulty. This report must contain the age equivalent of intellectual functioning and reading age, age-related percentile point, or adult norm in the case of mature students. For applications to the CAO through the Supplementary Admissions Route assessment should have been conducted within the last 3 years. This three year rule does not apply to registering with the Disability Service for appropriate and relevant supports. Full details on what is acceptable evidence for students with disabilities and specific learning difficulties are available on our website at: http://www.ucd.ie/all
EU, Visiting or International students may register with the Disability Service for supports. Full documentation as described above must be provided, a letter listing exam accommodations is not sufficient. Please note reasonable accommodations that apply in your home country may not be applicable in UCD. Students with Specific Learning Difficulties (e.g. dyslexia) should provide a copy of their most recent Educational Psychology Report clearly stating that the student has a Specific Learning Difficulty.
