1. Register with SAS
Step one lets SAS know that you would like to request accommodations and provides us with more information on what you are requesting. This occurs through a program called Clockwork, which is a program you will also use to send your accommodation letters.
2. Submit documentation
Part of the accommodations process is the submission of documentation. Documentation comes from a licensed provider and gives SAS more information on your disability, as well as your functional needs. Please note that the processes for documentation are different for housing-only requests.
3. Schedule to meet with SAS
Once you have completed the registration and submitted documentation, you will contact SAS to make an appointment. In that appointment, we will talk with you about your condition, your request, and about the possible options. Accommodations may be approved at this time, but often the approvals occur after the meeting.
Student requests for accommodation and documentation are considered confidential. At times, it may be necessary for SAS to discuss the nature of accommodations—but not the nature of the impairment/disability—with student service providers, such as Instructors/Professors, CFAR, Coaches, Staff Members, etc. This discussion is necessary to ensure the effective implementation of accommodations.
As well, the university may be required to release such information for medical emergencies, legal proceedings or otherwise to comply with state or federal laws. The same standard of confidentiality will also apply to student complaints regarding accommodations.
