Student Accessibility and Resources
Requesting Accessibility Services
Students requesting accessibility services are encouraged to contact the Student Accessibility and Resources (SAR) office at least thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of the semester. The student seeking services is responsible for completing and submitting the SAR Student Registration and Intake Form, scheduling a personal interview appointment with the SAR Case Manager and providing any supporting documentation that may help with determining eligibility. Following the interview appointment, the SAR Case Manager will review the intake form, personal interview information and supporting documentation. The student will be notified of eligibility and, if eligible, appropriate accommodations provided.

Supporting documentation is strongly encouraged and in some cases may be necessary to determine eligibility. If the student has any of the documentation listed below it is important that they submit it to the SAR office for the Case Manager to review. Most psychological, psychiatric or chronic illness will need supporting documentation. There may be need for new and/or relevant documentation to be obtained at the student's expense. If this is the case, the student will be informed by the Case Manager.
Supporting documentation must be from an appropriate qualified professional who has particular expertise in the area of the condition/disability.
Once eligibility has been determined by the SAR Case Manager and appropriate accommodations decided upon, a Letter of Accommodation (LOA) will be created by the SAR staff. It is the student's responsibility to give the LOA to each individual instructor they have during a semester. The student will need to submit a new course schedule each semester so that new letters may be created. To assure accommodations are received the first week of class, the student must submit a new course schedule at least 14 days prior to the beginning of each succeeding semester. The student should discuss with the faculty member relevant information that will assist in providing the approved accommodations. The faculty member will assure that the student receives the approved accommodations. The SAR Case Manager is available to the student and faculty member for consultation.
