Accommodation Basics: Where to Start

If you are not familiar with the accommodation process or accommodations in general, it can seem a little daunting at first. Here are some suggestions on how you can get started. Of course, you are always welcome to contact SAS directly for any additional guidance and support. We are here to help you through the accommodation process.

Review the SAS Student Handbook

One of the best places to start learning more about accommodations and the accommodation process is by reviewing the SAS Student Handbook. The handbook is a comprehensive resource that provides information related to:

  • Who we are and what we do
  • Key legal requirements
  • Privacy, data, and email policies
  • Accessing services at SAS (accommodation overviews and key responsibilities)
  • Details of the interactive accommodation process
  • Process for additional or updated accommodation requests

This is a critical document and will give you the scope and details about what we do in SAS.

Review the SAS Accommodations Guide: Procedures and Practices

SAS has created a guide that provides details about some of our more common accommodations. This includes information about:

  • What the accommodations are
  • Key things to know
  • Student responsibilities
  • Information about processes
  • Implementation recommendations
  • Common questions

Of course, there are many other accommodations that SAS can help students explore that are not in the guide. All accommodations are determined through an individualized process so can vary.

Review the 3 Key Steps and Prepare to Register with SAS

As detailed within the SAS Student Handbook, accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis through an interactive process. Students must request accommodations and accommodations cannot be retroactive. SAS is here to help students with the accommodation process:  

  1. Register with SAS
  2. Submit Documentation  
  3. Meet with SAS  

SAS will work with each student to determine which accommodations are reasonable, and can help students understand how accommodations will be implemented.
