Issuing Letters of Accommodation
Letters of Accommodation (LOAs) are letters that the DSPS staff produces for every student to give to professors of their classes. It is the student's responsibility to deliver these letters to each of their instructors. These letters will notify the instructor of the accommodations that the student receives (i.e. extra time on testing, note taker, tape recorder, etc.). Note: The disability is not disclosed on these forms.
Student should call the DSPS office 1-2 weeks prior to the beginning of each semester that they are attending to schedule an appointment to receive the letters of accommodations. This appointment should take 15-20 minutes and is facilitated by the student personnel assistant.
It is important to call or come and check-in with DSPS staff, even if the student feels like they will not need some of their accommodations for the semester. This will insure that you do not lose priority registration.
