To apply for academic accommodations through SSD, please follow the process below.
Step one -
Complete and submit the Student Intake Form.
Step two -
We will confirm your submission within five (5) business days with an email confirmation and you will be assigned an SSD Coordinator to work with regarding your accommodation needs. Communication will be sent directly to the student's University of Michigan email address.
Step three -
Reach out to your Coordinator to begin the process of identifying reasonable and appropriate academic accommodations.
Please forward any existing documentation you may currently have regarding your disability and/or history of accommodation use to your Coordinator directly.
Note: Students must complete the intake form and meet with their assigned Coordinator to be considered registered with the office.
They can then prepare a Verified Individualized Services and Accommodations (VISA) Letter which can then be used to present to faculty and instructors.
Due to COVID-19, our physical office space is closed and our staff are working remotely and are accessible. Please do not mail or attempt to drop off documentation.
Instead, it can be emailed or faxed to the office or to the staff member who requests it from you.
Please note that University Policy is two weeks’ prior notice for any academic accommodation.
