Student responsibilities include:

  • Self-disclosing and directly engaging with Student Disability Services (SDS)

  • Specifying and requesting accommodations needed as related to your disability, monitoring effectiveness of accommodations approved, and keeping SDS informed especially when questions or concerns arise.
