We hope that you find these step by step instructions helpful in uploading your documentation to your application.


1. Please do not submit documentation from prior to high school.

Documentation from prior to high school is not useful for our review process. Students must qualify for our services and we need to ensure that our services match the student’s academic support needs; current/comprehensive documentation best allows us to make this determination.

2. Please do not password protect your documents.

This will cause a significant delay during the application review process.

3. Why am I being asked for documentation?

Documentation is the comprehensive testing that led to a diagnosis of a learning or attention challenge. Providing documentation of your learning or attention challenge is a key step to submitting your application in order to be considered eligible to enroll. 

 

Do you have a preferred format for my documentation?

Documentation must be uploaded to the application in electronic format.  The file must be a Word or PDF document. 

Is there a file size limit?

Yes. The maximum file size you can upload is approximately 20 MB (megabytes).

I do not have documentation of a learning or attention difference, what must I do to satisfy this requirement?

If you do not have documentation, or have never been formally diagnosed with a learning or attention challenge, you will be prompted to answer a simple essay question:

"Describe your history of academic challenges and the support services you have used to manage these challenges."

How current must the documentation be?

The SALT Center would like to see what you consider the most current and the most comprehensive.  The SALT Center requests that you submit paperwork from your high school career.

Some examples of documentation include:


Psychoeducational Evaluation

This is the comprehensive battery of testing that led to a diagnosis of a learning or attention challenge. 

Psychoeducational testing refers to the psychological tests used to analyze the mental processes underlying your child's educational performance. As part of the assessment, your child will undergo psychoeducational testing.

Preferred
IEP An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a written statement of the educational program designed to meet a child’s individual needs.

The IEP has two general purposes:

  • to set reasonable learning goals for a child
  • to state the services that the school district will provide for the child
This is okay, however, we may need to contact you for additional information
504 Plan The 504 Plan is a plan developed to ensure that a child who has a disability identified under the law and is attending an elementary or secondary educational institution receives accommodations that will ensure their academic success and access to the learning environment. This is okay, however, we may need to contact you for additional information
Disability Statement This is a general statement from a physician, licensed clinical psychologist, or psychiatrist that a diagnosis of a learning or attention challenge is present. This is okay, however, we may need to contact you for additional information

If you have any questions about uploading your documentation, please contact Dennis Haymore at dhaymore@arizona.edu.
