Requesting accommodations is a 3-part process:
University students are responsible for identifying themselves as a person with a disability. At S&T this is done through the Student Disability Services Team.
To self-identify with TSDS, complete an application in minerAccess. For assistance with the application, please see the minerAccess Application Guide or contact the Student Disability Services Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can submit documentation directly into minerAccess or submit it to be uploaded to your application. Contact email@example.com with any questions about documentation.
Once TSDS has received your application and documentation, we will contact you to schedule an intake interview. In this interview, an accommodation advisor will talk with you about your previous educational experiences, past accommodations, what has been effective and ineffective in providing access, and the next steps.
Questions or Concerns
If you have questions or concerns at any point in this process, an Accommodation Advisor would be happy to talk with you. Contact TSDS at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
Once you have been approved for accommodations, you will receive a student eligibility letter along with information about faculty notification letters.
Each semester, you must request which accommodation(s) you will use for each class.
Accommodation advisors work with students to provide reasonable and appropriate accommodations dependent upon each individual situation. Some of the more common accommodation requests are listed below.
