Steps to Obtaining  Accommodations in College

It can take time to put accommodations, modifications, and assistive technology into place in college, and as a student, it is your responsibility to provide necessary documentation in a timely manner.
Obtaining accommodations in college is different than in high school in these ways:

  •  It is your responsibility to obtain and maintain accommodations.•  

  • You will have to reapply for accommodations for every year.

  • You will have to submit accommodation requests for each exam to your school’s accessibility office in order to schedule extra space, time, a text reader, etc.

  • Students will have to check in with their accessibility office/counselor to maintain accommodations.

  • Students should discuss all accommodations with their accessibility counselor and service providers (such as vocational rehabilitation counselor or Medicaid service provider [ACCES-VR, OPWDD]), if relevant.
