Psychological Disabilities

To document eligibility for SNAP Services based on a psychiatric/psychological disability, the student submits a report that meets the following guidelines:

  2. Administered by one of the following:
    • Licensed psychologist
    • Psychiatrist
    • Licensed professional counselor
    • Clinical social worker
    • Psychiatric nurse practitioner
    • Please Note: Evaluations administered by a relative are not accepted.
  3. Includes:
    • A DSM diagnosis
    • Current GAF score
    • A description of presenting symptoms, their severity and duration, and any relevant medical history
    • Dates of treatment and type of treatment provided, including medications prescribed and side effects
    • The expected progression of the disorder
    • The functional impact of the disorder on the student in an educational setting during the previous six months
    • The evaluator's signature, credentials, and licensing number
A documentation form for psychiatric/psychological disorders is available in the CDS office or online. The evaluator, in lieu of a written report, may complete such a form.
