Registration Process

Here is what you need to do to register with our office:

The first step is to complete the Registration Form. Our registration form covers a broad range of information. Some things may apply to you, and some items may not. You may skip any questions you feel do not apply to you. There are no right or wrong answers. (This form helps us understand your experience better, and which accommodations may be a good fit.)

The next step is for you to provide DS with some sort of verification documentation. There are three different ways for you to do this. Please note that you only have to complete one of the options below.

  • Send us any previous documentation from a licensed provider stating your disability, diagnosis, and/or symptoms you are experiencing. 
  • Have your provider complete our Verification Form, (stating your disability.)
  • Alternatively, you can complete our Release of Information Form. This form will authorize DS to request documentation from whoever you designate on your behalf. This form should only be filled out if you wish to release confidential information. 

Once DS receives both the Registration Form and documentation of your disability and you are registered for classes, DS staff will schedule an accommodation meeting with you and one of our accommodation managers. We will get to know one another and discuss what accommodations could help address barriers to your academic career. Accommodation meetings usually take around 45 minutes and can be done in person, over the phone, or via Zoom at your request. 

After the accommodation meeting, DS will write a letter stating your accommodations and provide it to your instructors via email at the start of the semester. You must contact Disability Services to renew your letter every semester. Renewing your accommodations can be done with a simple phone call, email, or in-person visit. DS will not send a letter of accommodation to your professors without your express permission each semester. If you wish to change your accommodations, please Contact Us, and we will schedule another meeting.
