Services for Students with Disabilities

Welcome!

How to Get Connected with SSD:

Step 1: Complete the Student Initial Information Form 

  • Access the Student Initial Information Form through our Accommodate platform. 

    • IMPORTANT: Please note that you should not delay meeting with us due to documentation concerns. Our first priority is meeting with you. Your coordinator will discuss appropriate documentation during your Welcome Meeting.

    • Please review our Helpful Documentation Guidelines. Documentation can be securely uploaded by the student in Accommodate. When this is not possible, it can also be submitted via fax at 734-936-3947, emailed directly to your Coordinator, or to ssdoffice@umich.edu.  

Step 2: Schedule a Welcome Meeting

  • After submitting your Student Application Form you will receive an email from SSD with a link to schedule your Welcome Meeting with your assigned coordinator. 

  • If you are an incoming first year student, we recommend waiting until during or after orientation to meet with a SSD coordinator. 

    • Due to the pandemic, meetings are primarily held remotely (Google Meet, Zoom, or Phone) but in-person meetings are available.

    • IMPORTANT: Please note emails from SSD will only be sent to your Umich email. Monitor your account for important updates and information.

Step 3: Welcome Meeting

  • During this meeting your coordinator will talk with you about disability-related barriers you may be experiencing, any history of accommodations, will explore reasonable accommodations, and discuss next steps. 

    • Coordinator may request additional documentation if needed.
