Requests for Documentation

At times, students may need documentation of services received at CPS to support withdrawal from classes, arrangements with financial aid, accommodations through Disabled Students Program, and for academic accommodations from instructors.

While it is generally not CPS policy to write letters, counselors can provide other forms of documentation when appropriate. Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) can provide the following documentation for current and/or previous clients:
