Timeline for Accommodation Requests

Making Timely Requests for Accommodations

Support services may not be available until requested by a student registered with DAS. 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).

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.

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 notices, reminders, and agreements in order to use accommodations

Students who are registering with DAS for the first time will need to allow for two to four (2-4) weeks for the registration & review process. Please see our Getting Started with DAS page for additional information.
