Process for Implementing Accommodations

After the disability and its functional limitations are verified, the student is provided information about the various reasonable accommodations that address the student's disability. The student then chooses the reasonable accommodations that best apply in a given course or semester.

  1. Students indicate the need for accommodation letters through submission of course schedule each semester to the department.
  2. Accommodation letters are sent through e-mail to each requested faculty member appearing on the student semester schedule.
  3. Faculty are informed of the presence of a signed language interpreter or special accommodations in the classroom prior to the start of the semester. Download sample faculty letter.
  4. When faculty/staff have been notified, additional clarification and discussion may occur.
Accommodations will begin within fifteen (15) business days after intake appointment in accordance with UNM Policy 2310 whenever possible.
