Low Vision or Blindness

Students requesting accommodations on the basis of low vision or blindness must provide documentation consisting of:

  1. An ocular assessment or evaluation from an ophthalmologist.
  2. A low-vision evaluation of residual visual function, when appropriate.
  3. Suggestions as to how the disabling condition(s) may be accommodated.*
  4. All reports must be in narrative form, typed, and signed by the physician. Chart or clinic notes are not acceptable as documentation.

*A history of accommodations does not in itself warrant the provision of similar accommodations at UNA. The final determination of eligibility for services rests with the University of North Alabama.

If you have questions or concerns about the documentation, please contact DSS at:
