What is an accommodation letter and how do I get one?
- An accommodation letter is an official document that you give to your professors so that they know how to support you in the classroom.
- During your intake meeting, you and your DRS Coordinator will discuss your individual needs and determine appropriate reasonable accommodations.
- You will receive your accommodation letter via Temple email after your intake meeting.
- We recommend that you hand-deliver your letter to each of your professors and engage in a discussion about your needs. For an example of how to handle this discussion, watch the Access TU videos.
- It is important to submit your documentation in a timely manner. Any delays may affect your accommodations.
- Professors will not retroactively provide academic accommodations in situations where students did not submit their accommodation letters.
- Essential requirements of a course will not be changed for any student.
- If your needs change, your accommodation letter can be modified as well. Contact your DRS Coordinator to discuss your needs.
