Details of Accommodations

SSD provides a range of services and accommodations that are tailored to individual students based upon their interactive process with their counselor. It is important to request your accommodations for each class as early as possible. Ideally just after your register for your classes, but at least 10-30 days before your term starts so that way SSD has the lead time necessary to facilitate all of your accommodations.
