Welcome Back!

We are glad to have you here for the Spring Semester. Students who are seeking to get registered with SAS can find out about the process in the “Information for Students” section of our website. You are also welcome to contact us for assistance.

To get the semester started for students already registered with SAS, here are few reminders:

  • Request Letters of Notification for professors by completing the semester request in ACCOMMODATE
  • Requests for note takers or books in alternate format can be completed using the survey links on the right of this page
  • Let us know how we are doing and how we can improve! Take a few minutes to complete a survey about your experience with SAS. 
  • Need to schedule exams through SAS? Visit the forms section of our website or stop by the office to get the Exam Scheduling Form. Be sure you return it to us at least a week before your first exam.

As always, feel free to contact your Accessibility Coordinator to discuss any questions or concerns you have about your accommodations or services and good luck.
