Who is a student with a disability
Generally, a student with a disability is one who has an impairment or condition which substantially limits a major life activity such as caring for one’s self, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working. An impairment substantially limits a major life activity when the individual’s major life activity is restricted as to the conditions, manner, or duration under which the activity can be performed in comparison to most people. Such an impairment can be a chronic or temporary condition.
Request an Accommodation
Submitting an Accommodation Request Form with SAS is the first step for students who wish to request a disability-related accommodation or service.
Students with previously approved accommodations can renew their accommodations for the semester or request new accommodations using the SAS Accommodate portal.
Students who are unsure about their eligibility for assistance should complete the Accommodations Request Form and meet with SAS staff to discuss their situation.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or accommodation inquires.
*If you are a faculty or staff member interested in workplace accommodations, please refer to the Office of Institutional Equity and Accessibility for more information.
