Student Responsibilities

You must contact Accessibility Services each semester to request accommodations. If we have met in person before, we can meet by email or phone as long as you are asking for the same accommodations. (We can also do that if you cannot meet in person due to a disability reason.)

Accommodation memos are sent to your professors soon after you meet with Accessibility Services OR on the first day of class. Students are required to discuss accommodations and how they apply to each class with their professors. Successful accommodations require communication! You may or may not be comfortable with talking about your disability. But, you need to be able to talk about what accommodations you need.

Contact Accessibility Services if you change your schedule. This is especially important if:

  • you use texts in different formats
  • you use interpreting or captioning services
  • your class location was changed
  • you are using adaptive technology that has to be moved or re-installed.

Contact Accessibility Services immediately if the professor does not take actions on your accommodations or if the accommodations are not working for you.

These are not all of your responsibilities. It is a list of a few of the important responsibilities when you use Accessibility Services.
