9. Students with specific nutrition concerns or medically restricted diets should meet with the registered dietitian and executive chef to review options for dining hall accommodations.

The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
