Requesting Accommodations

In order to be provided academic accommodations, students must:

    • Submit a Self Identification Form to the Office of Academic Support. 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:

Office of Academic Support

4000 Dauphin Street

Mobile, AL 36608-1791

Fax: 251-460-2187


  • After submitting the Self Identification Form and providing documentation, meet with the Office of Academic Support staff to discuss accommodations. Appointments can be arranged by emailing, calling 251-380-3470, or at

In order to use academic accommodations in class, students must:

  • Submit a Faculty Letter Request Form at the beginning of each semester to the Office of Academic Support. Students will be notified when letters are ready for pick up or electronic delivery.

  • 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.
