Hi there! New the forum...DS is interested in attending USMA and will need a waiver for his ADHD. He has the potential to be a recruited athlete so that might help with the waiver process. Anyway, I can see the disqualifying criteria for DODMERB and he'll get automatically DQ'd for his 504 plan and use of meds more than 24 months after his 14th birthday. My question is what is the criteria for USMA to consider a waiver. He's currently a Junior so if he were to go off his meds completely and stop utilizing his 504 plan next week by the Fall of his Senior year that would put him at about 1 year with no meds and no supports. Would this be enough for them to consider a waiver? The coach he spoke with said 12 months but it wasn't clear if it was 12 months from application, medical exam or reporting. How do you go about documenting that he's no longer taking his medication and no longer utilizing his 504 plan? Just letters from his doc and school? Most of the items in his 504 are things that any teacher would give kids if they asked for them anyway...seating up front, notes, extra practice problems, etc. The biggest accommodation is 1.5 time for tests. If he didn't use extra time on his ACTs would that help with the waiver?? Separate but related question...how to medical waivers fit into the equation with civilian prep schools? I know the coach sends a lot of athletes to civilian prep...could he use that time to be off his meds and 504 plan to apply for a waiver or do they have to be medically qualified before being offered prep? Thanks!
