The Accommodation Letter serves several purposes:
- Verifies to an instructor that the student is a registered student with a disability.
- Serves as a request for specific accommodations needed for equal access to a class; such as special seating or testing accommodations, or interpreter services.
- Informs the instructor of other accommodations the student may be using while completing classwork, such as recording lectures or using notetaker or alternate format text services.
- Opens an opportunity for student and instructor to discuss ways to succeed in the class.
In order to receive any accommodations for classes, students must request an accommodations letter to be sent to each of their instructors through AIMS at the beginning of each term.
