To request and use accommodations, you must have an Academic Accommodation Plan (AAP)
that outlines your authorized accommodations. Visit our Apply to DSPS page if you have not registered with the DSPS.
As a DSPS Student it is your responsibility to be familiar with your accommodations
and to request them each semester using the process outlined below. To use your accommodations, you must first send your instructors a faculty notification
letter via AIM. If you are already familiar with how to send faculty notification letters and request
accommodations, you can proceed to the DSPS Online Portal (AIM).
Once in AIM, scroll down and all your classes will be listed. Select which classes
you want accommodations for. If you don't see your classes right away, you may have a form to read and sign before
your classes will be shown. Click Continue to select accommodations you would like to use for each class.
After clicking Submit, an automated email message regarding your accommodation requests
will be sent to your instructor(s). Please communicate with your instructors to be
sure they have received and read it.
Once in AIM, scroll down, all your classes will be listed to be able to select which
classes you want notetaking accommodations for.
If you don’t see your classes right away, you may have a form to read and sign before
your classes will be shown.
Click on your classes and select the notetaking accommodation and any other accommodations
you would like to use for each class then click submit.
Your requests have been received and we will send a letter to your instructor requesting
them to announce in class that we are looking for a notetaker to share their notes
with another student in class.
