Announcements and Special Events
- Accommodation Letters
Students registered with the DSO who have been approved for accommodations can send their Spring 2022 accommodation letters to course professors beginning on or about Wednesday, January 19th. The email subject line will indicate that you are receiving an accommodation letter and will list the corresponding course number. Please save a copy of these emails for your records. Please visit this page for more information about implementing your accommodations.
Implementing your academic accommodations is a very important 2-Step Process that must be completed as early in the semester as possible to ensure that your accommodations are in place when you need them. Please check your KU email for directions for distributing your accommodation letters to your professors, and contact the DSO at 610-683-4108 or DSO@kutztown.edu if you have any questions or concerns.
