How to Request Accommodations

You are required to request accommodations every semester by logging in to the Accommodations Portal and selecting the accommodations you wish to use for each class. It is important to note that your accommodations are not active until you request them. Thus it is important to do so as early in the semester as possible.

Once you request your accommodations, your accommodation letter will be emailed to each of your professors. It is your responsibility to contact each of your instructor(s) to make arrangements to discuss your accommodation needs. It is highly recommended that accommodation discussions be conducted as early in the semester as possible and during faculty office hours rather than before or after class. 

Should you encounter any problems in regards to your accommodations it is imperative that you notify the DSS office as soon as possible. This will ensure that the issue can be addressed as proactively as possible.
