Steps to Complete a Request
- Student meets with Disability Support Services staff to self-identify, provide appropriate documentation of disability, request accommodation, and if appropriate, complete the Request for Accommodation Form. The ADA Coordinator will review the documentation and request, consult with faculty when necessary, and make recommendations.
- Student picks up accommodation letters from ADA Coordinator and then meets with faculty. The student and faculty then discuss the accommodations, and the letter is signed. One copy is kept by the faculty, and the other copy is returned to the ADA Coordinator.
- Any problems or concerns should be discussed with the ADA Coordinator as soon as possible.
- It is the student’s responsibility to contact the ADA Coordinator and complete a new Request for Accommodation Form form prior to the start of each semester. Students are advised to register for classes early and complete the Request for Accommodation Form as soon as possible.
