Students must request a letter of accommodation each semester they wish to receive accommodations.
Students may request a letter of accommodation at any time. There is no deadline to request a letter of accommodation. However, we strongly encourage students to request a letter of accommmodation before leaving for the semester-- for the Fall semester, we encourage students to request a letter of accommodation in May; for the Spring semester we recommend students to request a letter of accommodation in December. Requests made after these dates will not be ready on the first day of school. It may take DSS several business days to create a letter of accommodation if requested in the middle of the semester.
It is important to note that accommodations are not retroactive and cannot be utilized by students until he or she has fully registered with DSS and have given his or her professor the letter of accommodation.
