Accommodations Letters Online Portal Instructions for Faculty

Accommodations Letters Online Portal Instructions for Faculty

The SAS centralized database has web features that allow students to request accommodation letters online. The request automatically sends a notification to faculty in the form of an email message. The message contains a link to an online portal where faculty can review the letters, organized by course or by students alphabetically.  We are working toward adding additional functionality where faculty will be able to complete a form and receive a spreadsheet aggregating student names by accommodation type for each class.  SAS is aiming to to make managing accommodations with students as convenient as possible.  It faculty have questions about utilizing this portal please reach out to [email protected].
