Accommodation letters provide official notification of your registration with Disability Services and your eligibility for specific accommodations. Accommodation letters issued by Disability Services (DS) are for undergraduate students and serve to inform faculty of a student’s registration with DS. Graduate students must contact their school’s Disability Services Liaison prior to or during the first week of classes to begin the process of notifying faculty (in lieu of accommodation letters).
Remember that the Letter of Accommodations is just the first step in implementing your accommodations. You may still need to complete other request forms (e.g. note-taking request form) in order to receive those specific accommodations.
The letters include all of the course accommodations that have been granted for an individual student.
Instructors are not obligated to provide these accommodations until they receive your current letter of accommodation. Accommodations are not applied retroactively.
