How to arrange accommodation
Register with SAS
Generate Letters of Accommodation
If the services and supports you receive from SAS require instructor involvement (e.g. exam accommodations, note-taking, recording of lectures, need for special seating, or CART reporting), your instructor will need to know that these supports are being arranged through SAS and determined to be reasonable accommodations.
Letters of Accommodation inform instructors that you are registered with SAS and that you have provided SAS with appropriate confidential documentation to establish the reasonable accommodations listed on the letter.
When you activate your accommodations, relevant instructors are sent an auto-generated email that includes a link at which they can view you letter of accommodation. As instructor lists are not always current, we also suggest that you consider doing the following:
To generate a Letter of Accommodation:
- Open Clockwork and select 'Accommodation Letters'.
- Log in using your CCID and password.
- Choose to either review course specific accommodations or to 'Get prof letter' directly.
- Select 'Generate PDF Letter'. A PDF will be created which you can then choose to email or print.
Consider arranging an appointment with each of your instructors during their office hours within the first 2 weeks of classes to provide them with the Letters of Accommodations. During these meetings introduce yourself, present the letter, discuss how barriers in the environment and impacts of your diagnosis affect your studies, and explain how the accommodations arranged through SAS address those areas. You do not have to discuss the exact condition, just its functional impact for the course.
Accommodations for professional association or entrance exams
Are you planning to write professional association or entrance exams and need accommodations? Does the organization require verification documents from SAS to access accommodations?
Email your Accessibility Advisor a minimum of one month prior to the deadline for submission of the accommodation application to seek assistance.
Familiarize yourself with timelines and deadlines
Some services have timelines and deadlines for submission and scheduling. The more notice you provide, the more effectively we can assist you.
Deadlines for scheduling examinations into ClockWork must be met to ensure your accommodations are appropriately attended to. Failure to do so may result in accommodations being unavailable to you for those examinations.
