Students approved for academic accommodations will log into the SAS Online Portal each semester and send their accommodation letters to their faculty each semester. New semester means new faculty. We recommend sending your letters to faculty early in the semester, as accommodations are not retroactive and it does take time to implement certain accommodations.
