The Office of Student Disability Services (SDS) would like to remind students to please submit their Semester Request as soon as possible. This is done every semester you are enrolled in order to authorize accommodation letters to be sent to your faculty members. It is done online using our secure Accommodate system.
Important: If you made changes to your course schedule after your Semester Accommodation Request was submitted, you need to submit a new semester request for the new course(s) in your schedule.
Alternate Format Text and Digital Materials: For students approved for alternate format text accommodations, please make sure you fill out the Alternative Format Text form.
Note-taking Assistance: Students that are approved for note-taking assistance and plan to use this accommodation in their fall courses are encouraged to try Sonocent audio note-taker instead of using a peer note-takers.
Research indicates higher course GPAs and an increase in active learning and content retention when using Sonocent! Contact Andrew Drummond, the SDS Assistive Technology Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started with Sonocent.
SDS is here to assist you and we wish you a wonderful semester. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
