Academic Adjustments

How to Request Accommodations

Step 1: Confirm SAS Application

This procedure is only started after the student has completed the Application Procedure and has determined in collaboration with the Coordinator that the student will need an academic adjustment.

Step 2: Submit a new request every semester

We rely on the student to initiate the following process each semester when you need an academic adjustment.

Step 3: Request Academic Adjustment Online

Every semester after you are registered for classes, submit your Academic Adjustment Request through the Accommodate system through the link below. This will require your NetID.

Step 4: Contact SAS Coordinator

Make an appointment with the Coordinator, Dr. Apfel, by calling 203.857.7192 or coming to E322 to complete your Letters of Academic Adjustment.

Step 5: Receive Confirmation of Adjustment

Based on eligibility, you will be emailed a letter to review with the instructor in each course for which you are seeking academic adjustments.

Step 6: Review with Individual Instructors

Review the letter with each instructor as early in the semester as possible (preferably the first day of class) and make an appointment with the instructor to plan the arrangements.

Note: The demand for appointments with the Student AccessAbility Services Coordinator becomes very high as the semester approaches. New students should contact the Coordinator at least six weeks prior to the beginning of the semester. Continuing students (those who have provided documentation and previously met with the Coordinator to discuss academic adjustments) should contact the Coordinator at least three weeks prior to the beginning of the semester. Appointments will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
