How Should Students Request Academic
Accommodations?

Once students are approved for academic accommodations by SAS, they can request those academic accommodations in as many or as few courses as they wish. To request accommodations in a particular course,  students should bring their Academic Accommodations Letter (provided by SAS) to their professor at the start of each semester. 

We recommend that students bring a letter to their professors during office hours or schedule a time to confidentially discuss how the accommodations will be implemented in the course.

We recommend that students meet with professors early in the semester and at least two weeks before any exam accommodations are needed.
