If you are a student with a disability or disabling condition, you are entitled to reasonable and appropriate accommodations, auxiliary aids, and services that provide you with equal educational opportunities at Springfield College. The Academic Success Center’s Disability & Accessibility Services (DAS) is the College’s designated office for determining eligibility and facilitating student access in academic settings. Non-academic accommodation requests are managed by the Office of Non-Discrimination Initiatives (ONDI) through this same application process.
To request accommodations at Springfield College, follow the steps below:
1. Complete a New Student Application.
Use your Springfield College credentials to log in to our online portal at accessiblelearning.com/Springfield and complete a New Student Application. We ask for relevant information about your disability or medical condition, its impact on you, and any specific accommodations requested.
2. Submit Supporting Documentation.
Relevant and current documentation from a qualified professional is required to establish a non-obvious disability and disability-related need for academic accommodations. After submitting your application, you can upload supporting documentation directly to your application. Review our Documentation Guidelines for assistance. Need additional time to gather documentation? We'll send you a secure link to use later, or you can email documentation any time to email@example.com.
3. Schedule an Intake.
DAS will review your application, assign a primary DAS advisor, and invite you to schedule an intake with them by email. At your intake, we will review your eligibility for accommodations based on the information provided. If eligible, we will work collaboratively to develop an appropriate accommodation plan based on your self-report and supporting documentation. At this or a subsequent appointment, we will discuss the next steps and provide any trainings necessary to access your accommodations effectively each semester.
