There should certainly be no surprises arising. Why didn't you clear this up earlier? I don't know of any disability that launches itself at a person in the middle of a semester or directly after poor exam performance.
My suggestion would be to patch up the grades as best as possible. Do better next semester and then maybe transfer to somewhere you would feel more comfortable.
This issue was addressed in the beginning of the semester to the Dean of Academic Affairs. I had to address this issue TWICE through email, before Fall classes even started. Of course, she eventually remembered and emailed me back. Then, my hometown surgeon and physicians sent documentation, but there was little done to acknowledge it.
Then, I went to an appointment last semester with an area physician who saw that I needed accommodations and I was indeed more ill than I realized. She proposed a whole new level of accommodations, which the school did not want to honor.
My physician was very disgusted and released my records (with my permission) and even wrote a new note.
They "lagged" all last year, and, now, are now trying to be more aggressive in saying that my absences are absolutely not tolerable. It's always something with this school.
