Request for Accommodations

  1. At Converse University we generally require documentation of the student’s disability to determine eligibility. Please see our documentation guidelines below. 
  2. Complete our online application below. 

  3. Provide medical documentation to support the need for accommodations. Documentation must be scanned via email or hand delivered by the student to our office. Documentation must be current and may need to be updated each year. Applications received without documentation may be deleted.

  4. Once steps 2 and 3 have been completed someone will reach out to you from our department to set up a Welcome Meeting. A Welcome Meeting with the student is an important part of our process, and is required.  Eligibility for accommodations is determined by several factors which will be discussed at the Welcome meeting, and accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to give us a call at 864-596-9027 or email us at Thank you!
