Accommodations Procedures

Once you have been approved by Student Disability Services to receive access accommodations, you are responsible for requesting any accommodations, academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and/or services in a timely manner.

If you receive classroom accommodations, you are required to request an Accommodation Letter from SDS within the first two weeks of classes, or at least two weeks before accommodations are expected to begin if accommodations are granted or modified once the semester has started. 

  • You must do this for each class for which you want to use your approved academic accommodations.
  • The letter verifies your registration with SDS and specifies accommodations you are eligible to receive.
  • Accommodations may not be provided retroactively.
  • Letters will be emailed directly by SDS to your instructors. You will receive a copy.

Early notification and active communication with instructors is the best way to ensure that your accommodations are handled smoothly.

Additionally, it is your responsibility to understand and follow established procedures for using your accommodations. To learn more about procedures for using specific accommodations, please review the information on this website about specific accommodations. You can contact us with any questions.

All students using accommodations should carefully review your right and responsibilities as a student with a disability, our statement on confidentiality, and the procedure for resolving complaints.
