New for Fall in the Counseling & Accommodations Services Center


Changes made to our ADA academic accommodations process and tools, which will launch this fall. The Counseling and Accommodations Services Office has been busy this summer reviewing and responding to the feedback you provided during our session at the May Collaborative. The big news is that you will be informed via email about all required accommodations directly! Students will still be responsible for arranging an appointment with you to discuss their needs. If any accommodations are approved for any of your students, you will be in the know directly.

Below is a summary of what is new. Please contact Lynne Ballard or Denise Meyers if you have any questions or need anything throughout the semester.
