Accessibility Services - How to Discuss your Accommodation Letter with Your Instructor

Usually it is best to give your instructor your accommodation letter on the FIRST day of class, AFTER class is over when the classroom has cleared of students. You can also make an appointment with your instructor to discuss your accommodations during his/her office hours.

Depending on your accommodations, you may need to have specific discussions with your instructors.

For example:
Extended time for tests: This accommodation should be arranged with the instructor at least one week in advance of the test.

This is just one examples of arranging accommodations. The Counselor of Accessibility Services will discuss other arrangements of accommodations as they pertain to your situation.
