Current SAS Students

Current SAS students are invited to schedule a 30-minute appointment to discuss accessibility or accommodation needs, including letters of accommodation, Student Aid, or communicating with faculty.

With online learning, there may be changes to your accommodations. Barriers previously experienced may no longer be present, while new barriers may be present. If you wish to discuss your accommodations or talk about ideas to support your learning, do not hesitate to schedule an appointment.

Spring/Summer 2021 – For students requiring accommodations for Spring/Summer courses, complete the Accommodation Letter Request. at the beginning of the course. Your accommodation letter will be emailed to you and your professor within 1-2 days of submitting the request.
