My son has had a plan with you since he was a baby.  He has a diagnosis of a Learning Disability impacting his processing speed which takes him longer to complete assignments and exams.
The psychologist recommended a possible reduced course load if necessary in university.  Here are my two questions:

  1.  How many university courses need to be taken for a student to be considered full time and receive the full pay out?
  2. What accommodations are made for Learning Disabled students like my son who may not be able to take 5 full time credit courses?  What documentation/ paper work do you require in order for him to access his money?  Are there any deadlines?

He he plans to attend university in the Fall of 2020.
