Requesting Accommodations

In order to be provided academic accommodations, students must:

  • Submit a Self Identification Form to the Center for Academic Support and Advising. Submitting this form alone does not guarantee accommodations.
  • Provide documentation to verify disability. Please review documentation criteria to ensure documentation being submitted will be sufficient. Documentation can be submitted to:
Center for Academic Support and Advising
4000 Dauphin Street  
Mobile, AL 36608-1791 
Fax: 251-461-2187 
Email: casa@shc.edu  
  • After submitting the Self Identification Form and providing documentation, meet with the Center for Academic Support and Advising staff to discuss accommodations. Appointments can be arranged by emailing casa@shc.edu or calling 251-380-3470.
In order to use academic accommodations in class, students must:
  • Submit a Faculty Letter Request Form at the beginning of each semester to the Center for Academic Support and Advising. Students will be notified when letters are ready for pick up.
  • Arrange to meet with each professor to give the professor the accommodations letter and to discuss accommodations student would like to use in class. A professor is not obligated to provide accommodations to a student until the student discloses their accommodations to the professor. The professor is not obligated to provide accommodations retroactively.
  • Follow the Testing Accommodations procedures to use accommodations for tests/exams.
