Steps for Requesting Accommodations Each Semester

After you have registered with the SAS office you will need to request your accommodations for each semester you intend to use them. This is because your professors and classes change each semester and they will need information on your individual accommodations. 

Here’s how to request accommodations each semester:

  1. Fill out the "Request for Academic Accommodations" form. 
  2. Email or drop it off at Student Accessibility Services.
  3. Your accommodation letters will be emailed to you.
  4. Print your accommodation letters and hand deliver them to your professors.
  5. Follow SAS policies and procedures for using your accommodations, particularly if you have Distraction Reduced Testing.

 

What Is My Responsibility?

You can help us make sure your accommodations are successfully met by following the required policies and procedures. This includes maintaining active communication with both faculty and SAS staff and complying with all deadlines.
