Step One: Submit an Online Application
To register, first complete and submit an Application for Accommodations. Inadequate and/or incomplete answers may delay the eligibility review process. Please contact Disability Services if you are having any trouble accessing the form.
Step Two: Schedule an Access Meeting
Once the Application for Accomodations has been submitted online, you will be notified by email to schedule an Access Meeting to discuss accommodations, procedures, and services. The Access Meeting will last about 45 minutes. While documentation is not required to schedule the Access Meeting, we encourage students to submit their documentation as soon as possible. In an effort to expedite a review of some accommodation requests, you may be notified that an Access Meeting is not required.
Step Three: Submit Documentation
Students requesting reasonable accommodations and/or services must submit documentation of a disabling condition to verify eligibility. Students are required to submit documentation regarding the diagnosis/diagnoses that demonstrates a disability covered under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 as amended (2008).
Please review our Documentation Guidelines for additional information. All documentation is kept confidential.
Additional forms of documentation may include:
• Medical providers may fill out our Disability Verification Form
• A letter from a qualified medical professional
• Psychological evaluation(s)
• Psychoeducational evaluation(s) with standardized test scores
• A physician's medical records, etc.
Step Four: Login to Accommodate
After the Access Meeting, students will receive a Notice of Determination regarding their accommodation requests and registration status. Once registered, students log in to Accommodate to submit semester requests in order to send accommodation letters to instructors each semester. Students must communicate with each instructor to discuss the arrangements for receiving accommodations. Instructors do not have to provide accommodations to students if they have not been informed of the need in a timely manner.
