Letter of Accommodation
During the Intake Interview, AAS staff and qualified student develop a Letter of Accommodation (LOA). The LOA specifies which accommodations the student qualifies for and is intended to begin communication between the student and his/her instructor.
The student is responsible for giving a copy of their LOA to each instructor. The LOA is not activated until the student discusses the accommodations with his/her instructors. ASS staff is available, if the student would prefer, to participate in the conversation the student has with his/her instructor to activate his/her LOA.

Please Note: It is recommended that students utilize the instructor's office hours to discuss student's Letter of Accommodation.
During the Intake Interview, students will sign a Student Responsibility Form which outlines their basic responsibilities regarding accommodation implementation. Students are responsible for self-advocating and for contacting AAS in a timely manner when problems or questions arise about their accommodations or academic progress.
