Accommodation Letter Procedures

  • Current students must contact our office by phone, email, or in person to receive  a new letter every semester.
  • Letters are printed by Student Disability Services (SDS) or emailed to the student, as students request them. Students may call or email ahead to have printed copies ready to pick up.
  • Students who choose to receive a printed copy are given one for their records and one copy for each of their instructors.
  • Students must meet with instructors during office hours to discuss accommodations; if they have a time conflict, they must make an appointment to meet with the instructor at a different time. 
  • ONLINE and NONTRADITIONAL CLASSES: You can send the accommodation letter by email to your instructor. Please discuss with your instructor your needs and how each accommodation will be met. This can be done through email or phone, as needed.
  • Instructors must be given a minimum of one week to prepare for testing accommodations.
  • If a student has followed the above steps and is not being accommodated, they need to contact SDS right away.
  • If students are experiencing difficulty and would like to have additional accommodations considered, they should contact SDS.
  • Students should let SDS know if they have issues or concerns as they happen. This can help prevent more difficult issues from occurring.
  • Students should complete the chart entitled “Accommodation Arrangements by Class" and keep it for their records. Chart in .docx format. Chart in .pdf format
  • Students with interim accommodations (you will be told if you have interim accommodations) receive a letter with an INTERIM stamp on it. These are only good for one semester while you are getting documentation for SDS.
