Student Accommodation Information

Simple. Creative. Support.



Why Register?

If you want  an academic adjustment, you must identify yourself as having a disability. Your disclosure of a disability is always voluntary. Accommodations are not retroactive, so don't  wait until you are falling behind to seek help.


What about privacy?

DS respects a student’s right to privacy.  None of your peers or professors will know of your disability unless you decide to tell them.


What accommodations will I receive?

Accommodations are determined based on the specific limitations of a disability. Because each disability is unique,each accommodation plan is unique. Accommodation plans may include extended exam time, permission to record lectures and print materials in an alternative format.


Where do I start?

Submit a Request for Services and documentation.
Complete the online form and provide appropriate documentation from a qualified medical professional that verifies the existence of the disabling condition and identifies the functional limitations caused by the disability.
