Applying for Accommodations

If you are a current, incoming or prospective student with a disability who is seeking academic adjustments or any other services, you must complete the following steps with the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (OSSD):

  •  self-identify

  •  provide appropriate documentation of your disability

All disability documentation must be on letterhead and signed by the professional completing the paperwork. We treat all information you provide with strict confidentiality.

Academic adjustment requests can take up to five (5) business days to be processed, so we strongly encourage you to begin this process prior to the start of registration for the semester you plan to attend. Last-minute requests are not guaranteed.

Academic adjustments must be requested each term. Please contact your campus OSSD for more information. You may also complete the Intake Form prior to meeting with us and email all completed forms and documentation to your campus OSSD.
