Accommodations Request Timeline

Main page content

In order to ensure sufficient time to make provisions for appropriate accommodations and auxiliary aid(s), students must request approved accommodations in a timely manner. Below is a list of services and appropriate timelines for most circumstances. If a request is submitted after the relevant deadline, DRS will make every reasonable effort to accommodate the request but cannot guarantee that such a request can be met. Accommodations are approved throughout the quarter, but are not retroactive. Untimely requests may result in delay, substitutions, or the inability to fulfill the request(s).
