The Services for Students with Disabilities office (SSD) is pleased to announce the implementation of Accommodate, a core electronic case management system that will assist students, faculty, instructors, and staff in requesting, approving, and implementing disability-related accommodations.
Students who would like to request disability-related academic accommodations will utilize the Accommodate system for student services processes. This includes scheduling appointments with the SSD staff, requesting accommodations, notifying faculty of approved accommodations, and requesting alternative format text materials. The Accommodate portal will allow students 24-hour access to all of their disability information including approved accommodations, pending requests, accommodation notification letters, current and past SSD appointments, uploaded documentation and documents, and more.
Third party testing agencies and graduate or licensure exams often have their own process for requesting accommodations. Documentation requirements can vary across agencies so it is important to review these requirements well in advance (six months to a year). Students may need updated documentation to meet the requirements of third party testing agencies.
