Registering with Student Accessibility Services
Obtaining Academic Accommodations:
Students seeking to receive academic accommodations should proceed with the following steps:
1. Contact Student Accessibility Services: Call (320) 363-5245 to set up an Initial Appointment with one of our Student Accessibility Specialists
2. Provide Diagnostic Information: All students registered with our office are required to provide diagnostic information confirming the presence of a condition that significantly impacts a major life function. We recommend submitting this information in advance of your Initial Appointment, as it helps our team plan for a more productive meeting.
3. The Initial Appointment: The Initial Appointment provides the student an opportunity to request specific accommodations, share information about learning experiences and ask questions about our resources. Students are expected to be active participants in this process, as they will be responsible for managing all approved accommodations and resources. We look forward to this meeting as an opportunity to share information about our resources and the delivery of accommodations at CSB/SJU.
4. Following the meeting: Our team uses information from the Initial Appointment and submitted documentation to determine accommodation eligibility. For those accommodations that are deemed appropriate, an explanation letter describing approved accommodations is sent to the student. This letter provides detailed instructions for each approved accommodation.
5. Send Accommodation Letter to Faculty: Following the Initial Appointment, those students deemed eligible for classroom accommodations will receive a copy of their letter from the Student Accessibility Services Office. It is the student's responsibility to deliver the accommodation letter directly to their faculty. At the beginning of each subsequent semester, students must complete a brief on-line form to have their accommodation letter sent out.
*Please note: Accommodation eligibility at CSB/SJU will be determined by one of our Student Accessibility Specialists on a case-by-case basis. The fact that an accommodation was previously approved in high school or other institutions of higher education does not automatically guarantee it will be honored by CSB/SJU.
