Students with disabilities requesting accommodations must self-identify with the office and fill out an application for services. It is recommended that the student meet, speak on the phone, or have a virtual meeting with Services for Students with Disabilities to identify needs and discuss appropriate accommodations.
Students must provide current, appropriate documentation that supports their disability and the accommodations requested.
Arrangements for accommodations are made on an individual basis and are designed to equalize access to educational opportunities.
An Accommodation Letter listing the appropriate accommodations will be prepared for students to email to their professors.
After the initial determination, if accommodation needs remain the same, students may renew their accommodation requests each semester they are enrolled.
Students should schedule an appointment with the Assistant Director of the Student Success Center if: they need to modify their accommodation requests, they are experiencing academic difficulties, or they have questions or need advice.
Students should arrange an individual meeting with their professors to discuss their accommodation needs as soon as possible.
Students requesting to utilize the Testing Center in the Student Support Center should discuss with their professors the logistics of taking the assessment at least one week before the first test in order to provide this information to professors in a timely manner.
Late requests for accommodations may cause a delay in requested accommodations.
Accommodations are not retroactive. Professors can provide accommodations only after receiving an accommodation letter.
Accommodations provided by high schools, other colleges, or universities may not automatically be provided by The Citadel.
