Students seeking academic accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act must register with the Center for Accessibility Services (CAS) to determine eligibility. Students qualified for academic accommodations will receive accommodation letters and should meet with each course professor during office hours, to review and discuss accommodations. For more information, call 540-831-6350.
Steps to Register with the Center for Accessibility Services
- Complete a Student Registration Form (PDF).
- Complete a Request for Accommodations Form (PDF).
- Submit medical documentation from your provider according to our documentation guidelines (PDF).
Upon receipt of the above information, a disability services specialist will contact the student to schedule a meeting (telephone or in-person) to discuss accommodations.
Center for Accessibility Services’ registration forms and/or medical documentation can be provided to the office by email, fax or in person at the CAS office.
If accommodations were assigned in high school, it is highly suggested that students register with the CAS and use accommodations from the first semester in college.
