Once I am registered with SSD, what do I need to do to receive accommodations each semester?
The process to request your accommodation letters and have them set to your instructors is completely digital to make things easier for students! Each semester, SSD students must initiate the request for their semester-specific accommodation letters to be sent to their instructors through our online database system, MySSD. Once a student requests their accommodation letters, the SSD office will send them to their instructors electronically, via email.
To request your accommodation letters, click on the “Returning Students” tab on the left and follow the instructions listed there to request accommodation letters. There is a step-by-step instruction guide found on the "Returning Students" page to help you request your letters.
Accommodations are effective upon receipt of the semester-specific accommodation letter by the instructor. They are not retroactive.
Why should I register with SSD?
It is recommended that all students with disabilities provide documentation to SSD, even if they do not choose to request any services.
Providing documentation enables SSD staff to act more efficiently and knowledgeably on a student’s behalf, should the need arise and should the student request this.
