Graduate and Professional Students
Student Accessibility Services provides accommodations to students across the different graduate and professional programs. Because each degree program and school tend to have different fundamental requirements and obligations, accommodations tend to require a more nuanced approach to removing barriers to access. This may be in the classroom during coursework, in a lab or research appointments, during teaching responsibilities, while on clinical rotations, and within law school programs.
Graduate and professional student exams are not proctored by SAS. The method of notifying faculty and administrators is highly variable between schools and programs. The relevant information for your program will be reviewed when you meet with SAS.
To request accommodations, students must make a request with SAS, which involves:
- Complete the Accommodation Request form. Please allow 3 business days from submission for outreach from a SAS staff member.
- Provide supporting documentation (see Documentation Guidelines).
- Meet with a SAS staff member to discuss your request and current situation, and to develop a plan for moving forward.
Please view the Housing page for specific information about housing accommodations.
A student may request accommodation and submit documentation to SAS even though a specific accommodation request is not anticipated at the time of requesting accommodation.
Documentation provided to SAS is kept confidential. Information submitted directly to SAS will not become part of a student’s permanent record at Yale.
Students who are unsure about their eligibility for assistance should complete the Accomodation Request form and meet with SAS staff to discuss their situation.
Need to Renew Your Accommodations
All students previously approved for accommodations should submit an Accommodation Renewal Request every semester. Please allow three business days from submission to receive an updated accommodation letter, if applicable.
*Generally, students should renew academic accommodations when course schedules seal.
Requesting additional accommodations: If you are already approved for accommodations but want to request additional accommodations, view our Supplemental Accommodations Guide.
