Registered Students: Next Steps

During the initial interview, the student and the coordinator will determine a list of approved accommodations that will best support the student’s needs. 

Once everything has been completed, the student will be able to access their Student Dashboard on the AIM Student Portal and request accommodations.

1) Requesting Accommodations

Students can select their courses via the AIM Student Portal and then select specific approved accommodations for each course. Accommodations can be customized by class. Students must request accommodations every semester; students are encouraged to request their accommodations at the beginning of the semester, but may do so at any time. It is important to remember that accommodations are not retroactive and that it is the student’s responsibility to select their accommodations each semester.

After selecting accommodations for each course, an email is sent to the course instructor with the student’s Accommodation Notification Letter. This email states that the student is registered with the DRC and lists the approved accommodations.

2) Setting Up Approved Accommodations

Certain accommodations (testing, notetaking, alternative text) are accessed via the AIM Student Portal and must be arranged each semester. For more information, please see the Student Accommodations page and select the specific accommodation.
