SPRING 2021 ACCOMMODATION LETTERS

Students will have access to request and send accommodation letters via email to their professors this week. Students have been instructed to reach out to their professors to discuss how their accommodations will be implemented in their courses. Discussions may take place via Zoom, email, phone, or a socially-distanced in-person meeting. Faculty members can facilitate this process by announcing that students who need accommodations should meet with them privately. Contact Disability Services, if you have any questions or experience difficulty with the electronic accommodation letter system.
