How to Be Considered for Course Accommodations

Follow these steps to receive consideration for course accommodations.

  1. Contact the Disability Service office and provide documentation. (See the documentation guidelines.)
  2. If the documentation supports the need for academic adjustments, a disability specialist will provide a letter identifying appropriate academic adjustments.
  3. Please share this letter and discuss the adjustments with your instructor as early in the course as possible.
  4. You must contact a disability specialist to request academic adjustment letters at the beginning of each semester.
