Accommodation Notification

After SDS receives a written Accommodation Request Form, an official electronic notification letter will be generated via email and sent to both you and your instructor/s that outlines the previously agreed upon individual accommodation plan as well as some instructions on how to implement various accommodations. This can occur at any time throughout the semester, based on student submission of the accommodation request form. Depending on when accommodation request forms are received by SDS, emails will be sent out at the beginning of each semester and throughout the semester. Please monitor the SDS website and office posting for time sensitive guidelines for submitting accommodation requests to your instructors. (Please note that a student may be denied the implementation of their accommodation for the current semester if there is insufficient time to gather the appropriate documentation to implement the accommodation and/or to implement an alternative). Note: If an instructor has not been assigned to the course or an email address cannot be identified for the assigned instructor, SDS will send the accommodation letter via email directly to the student who will then be responsible to notify their instructor/s directly.

When you receive notification through email that an accommodation letter has been sent to your instructor/s, you must contact/talk and/or meet with your instructor/s to make sure an accommodation “plan of action” has been put in place for each of your classes and that both you and your instructor/s have agreed on how these accommodations will be implemented. SDS professional staff are available to the instructor for consultation if needed. Instructors are not obligated to do any accommodations until an accommodation request form is filled out and your instructor has been notified each semester. Accommodations are not retroactive.
