How to Apply for Accommodations

To receive academic, housing, dining, facilities, or assistance animal accommodations while studying at ISU, you will need to work closely with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) staff and other campus partners and departments to ensure that your accommodations are in place and ready when classes begin.

Follow these simple steps below to begin your accommodations process:

Step One

Complete the SAS Registration Form

Step Two

Provide any relevant documentation. Please note documentation must meet our guidelines in order for the student to become eligible for services. For more details, please review our Documentation Guidelines

Documentation will be reviewed by an Accessibility Coordinator and any communication will be sent to the student's ISU email.

Step Three

After the documentation has been reviewed by an Accessibility Coordinator and the student is considered eligible for services, they will be invited to come to the SAS office (or a virtual meeting) for a welcome meeting to discuss the accommodations that have been given. During this appointment, the Accessibility Coordinator will walk the student through each of the accommodations, explain the Notification Letter process, and explain how to have a conversation with professors. 

Step Four

A Notification Letter will be emailed individually to professors in each class that the student would like accommodations for. It is the student's responsibility to contact each professor to discuss how their accommodations will be implemented. If possible, we encourage all students to meet with their instructors during their office hours. 

Step Five

After the initial semester, the student will request Notification Letters each subsequent semester through Accommodate. 

Step Six

The student can contact an Accessibility Coordinator at any time if they are having issues with implementing or receiving an accommodation or if they having trouble accessing Accommodate.
