Limits in Providing Accommodations

Academic accommodation (VISA) letters are intended to level the academic playing field, but there are limitations to what SSD can provide.

Two Weeks Notice Standard for Accommodation Requests

We in the SSD office would like to remind instructors that when a student presents you with a VISA letter, the minimum amount of time to make the accommodation is two weeks.  While it is certainly admirable if you can provide this accommodation in less time, instructors should not feel any pressure to meet this obligation sooner.
