Introduction and Logging In

This video tutorial provides an introduction to Accommodate and covers how to log into the Accommodate Faculty Portal in MyMadison.

Accommodation Letters

If you have a student who has requested accommodations in your course, you should have received an email notification from disability-svcs@jmu.edu with instructions for logging in to your Accommodate Faculty Portal to view and sign the student's Accommodation Letter.

You can watch the Accommodation Letters video tutorial for more information about how to find and view your students’ Accommodation Letters, how to use the feature, and learn about the accommodation process. 

You can follow the brief instructions below to quickly find and view your students’ Accommodation Letters.

  1. Log into MyMadison.
  2. Select the "Faculty" tab. 
  3. Click on the Accommodate logo on the left. 
  4. Select "Accommodation Letters" in the left navigation menu.
  5. Review each of the Accommodation Letters and make a note of the accommodations to provide for each student in each of your courses. 
  6. To view students by course, select "Courses", choose a course, and select the "Enrolled Students" tab.

Courses: Enrolled Students List

This video tutorial provides an overview of the Enrolled Students tab under the Courses feature in Accommodate. By using the Enrolled Students tab, faculty members can view a complete list of enrolled students in each of their courses along with a short summary list of accommodations to be implemented in their course for students who have them. It is still imperative that the faculty member review each student's Accommodation Letter and not rely solely on the accommodation summaries in the Enrolled Students tab since some accommodations have further description that are not included in this short summary list.
