Frequently Asked Questions

By providing the most current assessment of your performance and abilities, we will be able to best meet your needs. Also, because the provision of all reasonable accommodations and services is based upon an assessment of the current impact of the disability on academic performance, it is in a student’s best interest to provide recent and appropriate documentation. In most cases, this means that a diagnostic evaluation has been completed within the past three years however no student should delay requesting accommodations out of concern for not having the appropriate paperwork. Make an appointment with Juliana Cislo, Accessibility Services Specialist (256-233-8143), and bring all the previous documentation you have and we will work with you on whether or not it is in your best interests to be retested.

Yes, students seeking accommodations must send the Accessibility Services Specialist their semester schedules each semester. This schedule indicates that the student wishes to receive accommodations again that semester and that Accessibility Services has the student’s permission to inform their professors of their accommodations. It is not done automatically. Semester schedules can be sent via email, by fax (256-233-8143), or in-person to Accessibility Services. Schedules should include the following information:

  • Student Name
  • Student Number
  • Semester
  • Course Name
  • CRN
  • Date/Time of Class
  • Delivery Mode: DL- Online, DL-Blended, Traditional (Lecture)
