Registration & Accommodation Request Process

SJSU employees who wish to register with the EARC and request reasonable and appropriate employment accommodations are asked to (1) submit the documentation specified below and (2) meet with an EARC representative following the submittal of the required documentation for review of your accommodation request.

The following checklist is intended as a guide to the EARC registration/request process. If you require assistance with the registration process, please contact the EARC.

Note: If your only request is a disabled parking permit, this registration checklist does not apply to you. However, if your request includes a disabled parking permit and another possible accommodation, this registration checklist does apply to you. For information on how to obtain a disabled parking permit, please refer to Disabled Parking

EARC Prospective Employee Registration Checklist

Step 1: Complete the EARC Intake Form (PDF).

Step 2: Obtain medical/psychological disability verification documentation (i.e., medical documentation verifying that you have a disability as defined under California's Fair Employment and Housing Act, and that you are in need of an accommodation because of your limitations) from your treating physician/professional.

If you do not currently have medical/psychological disability verification documentation, please have your treating physician/professional complete the EARC Medical/Psychological Disability Verification Form (PDF).

Step 3: Obtain a current position description. (Note: This step is for staff only. EARC works directly with Faculty Affairs regarding this step for faculty.)

Step 4: Submit the EARC Intake Form, medical/psychological disability verification, and current position description (if applicable) to the EARC via one of the two methods below.

  • Fax: Please fax documents to EARC's confidential fax line at 408-924-4358.

  • Mail/Hand-Delivery: Please mail or hand-deliver documents to the EARC in a sealed, confidential envelope at the address below. Please be sure to keep copies of all documents submitted.
