DS provides a one page handout, “Requesting Accommodations” (on our forms page), that can be printed out for review and reference. The information on the handout is included below and through links on this page that include some more detailed information.
Students may submit information and accommodation requests at any time during the semester. However, it may take up to 2-3 weeks for the information to be reviewed and accommodations to be put in place. For more information about the review process or the type of information to submit please visit our the guidelines for documentation.
Information should be submitted in person, delivered via mail, or faxed (contact page). We do not recommend sending medical documentation through e-mail. If you want to send in documentation electronically, we recommend using an encrypted file share service such as Filex then sending the link to the encrypted file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Submitted information is reviewed
Student information will be reviewed on an individual, case-by-case basis in the order that it is received. Students can check on the status of their review at: Tracker Online. After the review, an Access Coordinator will contact student to set up an appointment to discuss possible accommodations. If you have not heard from Disability Services within 3 weeks of submitting information please contact the office to check on the status of your request.
- Meet with Access Coordinator
The student will meet with their Access Coordinator to discuss Disability Services policies and procedures as well as possible accommodations and resources available. If necessary, the Access Coordinator will advise the student of any additional information needed.
It is the student’s responsibility to make their needs known and to provide the appropriate documentation to support the need for the requested accommodations.
