How can students submit an accommodations request?

A student that is interested in registering with the ASC should first complete an intake form and then submit comprehensive documentation.  The link can be found at https://morstavian-accommodate.symplicity.com/.  Once a student submits both of these items, they will be reviewed and the student will be contacted for an intake meeting to determine if accommodations are needed.  This process can take several weeks and students are encouraged to submit documentation as soon as they have committed as students, to begin the process promptly.

The ASC also offers academic coaching services in which students that are registered with our office can take advantage of weekly appointments at the ASC.  This allows students to work on organization, study schedules, time management, and accommodation monitoring.  This is often a service that can be very helpful for students to begin working as independent students and self-advocates.
