Steps to Request Accommodations

Procedure for Students Requesting Disability-Related Accommodations

Step 1

Schedule a meeting with the Coordinator, whose contact information is provided below, to discuss your accommodation request.

Call: 843-792-1072

Step 2

Bring to the meeting with the Coordinator a filled out copy of the University’s Disability Support Services Request for Accommodation form (PDF) and any documentation (for example, education records or diagnoses from medical providers) that you believe is relevant to your disability and/or accommodation request—especially any documentation that describes the impact of the disability on you and how the requested accommodation(s) would address that impact.

Because each person’s situation is unique and documentation requirements vary by situation, the University’s Coordinator will talk to you about documentation requirements during the initial meeting. No student should delay meeting with the Coordinator out of concern for not having the appropriate paperwork.

Step 3

If the Coordinator determines that you are an otherwise qualified student with a disability, and thus eligible for accommodation, the Coordinator will engage in an interactive process with you and, as necessary, relevant University officials (e.g., course instructors, admissions staff, etc.) and others to determine the appropriate accommodation(s).

Step 4

If your request for accommodation is approved, the Coordinator will generate a Letter of Accommodation, which documents the accommodation(s) you have been granted. You are responsible for promptly collecting this letter and presenting it to faculty.

If your request is not approved, the Coordinator will notify you in writing of the decision and related reasoning.
