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 deliver a Faculty Notification Letter from SDS to the professor 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 will not be provided retroactively.

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 and/or contact your SDS counselor.

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.
