Students with Disabilities & Accommodations

Students with a documented disability may be entitled to accommodations to facilitate exam-taking and classroom learning. Students needing special accommodations should fill out a request form (available on ASL’s website, in the registrar’s office, and in the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs office) and provide the necessary supporting documentation for the request at least 30 days before the requested effective date of accommodations. The Associate Dean will forward the request to the Academic Accommodations Committee for review and determination pursuant to the policies and procedures set out in the section entitled “Academic Accommodations Committee” of the Academic Standards.

Accommodations for temporary disabilities or emergency accommodations must be requested each semester in which they are required. The request for emergency accommodations and supporting documentation should be submitted to the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs as soon as reasonably possible after the need for accommodation arises. Keep in mind that the process of considering documentation and developing appropriate accommodations will take a minimum of 48 hours.
