Services for Students with Disabilities

Third Party Testing

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. SSD may be able to assist students in verifying accommodations you’ve received while at UMich or complete a form needed for another institution or testing agency. Please reach out to your Coordinator or for assistance. 

Accommodation Appeals Process

The office of Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) provides reasonable academic accommodations to Undergraduate and Graduate students with disabilities. Questions and concerns related to a student’s disability-related academic accommodation should be immediately brought to the attention of SSD staff. The SSD office serves as the University’s primary point of contact in initially reviewing student’s disability-related Academic Accommodations, and will consult with other offices across campus during the exploration process of accommodations and when addressing student’s concerns regarding the decision made in regards to accommodation requests. 

Your Responsibilities

Getting good results from academic accommodations is something that takes some effort on your part, too.

Before requesting accommodations, be sure to understand your responsibilities.
