Registered DAS students must request accommodations each term. Once students register for courses they will appear in your DAS Online Services account the following day. Students are encouraged to request accommodations within 48 hours after registering for classes.  Accommodations requested for the current term after Friday of week 8 will be approved on a case by case basis. Please note that accommodations are not retroactive. In order to ensure sufficient time to provide accommodations, the student must submit their accommodation requests online within the appropriate time frame each term (see Chapter 1, Students' Rights and Responsibilities). Please see the following timeline for the minimum time requirements for specific accommodations

If a request is submitted after the relevant deadline, reasonable efforts will be made by DAS and faculty to accommodate the request. However, we cannot guarantee that such a request can be met. Untimely requests may result in delay, substitutions, or denial of accommodation.

Be sure to read DAS emails, reminders, and agreements in order to use accommodations.
