Requesting New Accommodations
In order to request new accommodations please follow the necessary steps below:
- Download and fill out the Intake Packet. Submit the packet and documentation from your doctor to the Office of Disability Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) or in person at Disability Service office on the 4th floor of Ruffatto Hall.
- After DSP has reviewed your documentation they make their recommendation for accommodations to the Dean of Student Affairs. Either a member of the Student Affairs team or a DSP staff member will be in contact with you to let you know the accommodations for which you have been approved.
- Once DSP has approved you for accommodations, the Office of Student Affairs will work with you to receive your accommodations.
Please Note: It can take up to six weeks for Disability Services to review your documentation, so be sure to get your documentation to Disability Services ahead of time if you wish to receive accommodations on tests and exams.
