Step 4: Check out any necessary equipment
Students should check out any equipment they need from the DSS team member (i.e. SmartPen, recorder, note taking paper, etc.).
Step 5: Talk with each instructor
Before the start of the semester (about 1 – 2 weeks prior to the first day of classes), each student will be required to activate his/her accommodations for the semester. This step must be done EACH semester. Emails will be sent out by the Disability Support Services team with the steps to activate the accommodations. This will be the student’s responsibility to complete.
If the student does not activate his/her accommodations, then he/she will not receive accommodations for that semester. Once the accommodations have been activated for that semester, students should talk with each instructor to ensure the instructor has received their Accommodation Letter.
Step 6: Follow up with DSS team member as needed
Each student should check in at least once per semester and should meet with their DSS team member at the beginning of each semester.
