Services for Students with Disabilities

Faculty Procedures

Requests for academic accommodations are initiated by the student. A student must meet with Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) to obtain the necessary documentation for approved accommodations. SSD will provide the student with a Verified Individualized Services and Accommodations (VISA) form. Students register with SSD on a rolling basis.


SSD Accommodation / VISA Letter

Students who have registered with our office and met with their disability coordinator to determine accommodations receive a Verified Individualized Services and Accommodations (VISA) letter to give to their instructors.  Although a student may request an academic adjustment at any time, the student should request it as early as possible.
