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.
