Accommodation Process

Step 1: Student Completes the DSS Intake

The intake process involves students disclosing their disabilities and then working together with DSP&S to identify their accommodation needs. Identifying accommodation needs is an individualized process based on the student's documentation and educational experiences. Most students request assistance from DSP&S after being referred by an instructor, a rehabilitation counselor, a high school teacher, or another individual receiving services. In the intake process we strongly urge students to practice an assertive, reasonable approach to communicating their needs to faculty. It is important for the student, DSP&S and faculty to work together to achieve a positive outcome.
