Current Students

Students, professors, and Student Disability Services all have important roles to play in ensuring that appropriate accommodations are provided to eligible students. 

Students that have completed an intake can help ensure appropriate accommodations are in place each semester by:

  • registering for classes during the priority registration period;
  • requesting accommodations for the upcoming semester/ block/ clinicals/ etc.  in SAM as soon as possible after registering;
  • adjusting your accommodation request in SAM if you add/ drop or withdraw from a class;
  • if you take tests at Student Disability Services, meet with each faculty member to discuss accommodations, the testing process and fill out a testing contract (in SAM) together;
  • assisting Student Disability Services in identifying textbook information if requested;
  • notifying your Accessibility Specialist immediately of any concerns regarding your academic accommodations; and
  • adjusting your request for accommodations in SAM if, after attending class, you feel that a previously requested accommodation is no longer needed or you wish to request an additional accommodation.

WeConnect

WeConnect is dedicated to uniting people interested in rights and issues affecting people with disabilities, with particular emphasis on college students and access to higher education and employment issues. One of the goals of this site is to help college students with disabilities to succeed in their studies by getting the information and support they need, both through resources, links, blogs latest news, studying existing law and regulation and through personal contacts. Through this website people can also share and read other people’s stories as a source of support and comfort. We also want people using our webpage to take action by writing blogs, hosting an event or becoming involved in politics by knowing about upcoming legislation.  Also, every month our webpage will focus on a particular disability or condition to bring our visitors more information and support related to our focus of the month. Through our jobs section, we also hope to help empower people with disabilities find employment through job posting and job searching tips, and  if people have any questions we encourage them to contact us. The goal of this site is that people leave it having gained knowledge, a support system and having taken action. We were founded in 2008 as a blueprint project for Young People For.
