The first and most important step in requesting accommodations is to provide the Office of Disability Services with current documentation that validates and establishes your disability. Please visit the ODS website for specific guidelines regarding documentation.
Second, you should schedule a meeting with the Director of Disability Services. During that meeting your documentation will be reviewed, you will discuss how your disability affects you, explore specific reasonable accommodations and develop a written "Access Plan". Your Access Plan is a document that you use to help communicate the validity of your disability and your specific accommodation needs to your professors and others, as appropriate.
