Steps to Requesting Accommodations

  1. Review the Policy and Procedures for the Provision of Services to Students with Disabilities
  2. Complete and submit the Accommodations Request Application to Student & Diversity Services. The deadline for Summer 2015 exam accommodations is Tuesday, July 14, 2015
  3. Give your physician the Release Form and Professional Verification, included in the packet. The professional must include supporting documentation to verify disabilities or learning disorders, and submit documents via mail or fax. The fax number is 619-615-1448.
  4. Student & Diversity Services will contact applicants who completed steps 1-3 via email to schedule an appointment. 
  5. The Assistant Dean for Student & Diversity Services will provide reasonable accommodations based on consultation with the student and medical professional recommendation. 

All students are encouraged to meet with the Assistant Dean of Student & Diversity Services to discuss questions about the process.

Students granted permanent accommodations are not required to submit an additional request, unless they are requesting new or revised accommodations. Students granted temporary or transitory accommodations are required to meet with the Assistant Dean each trimester. \
