We use an interactive process to help you move forward with your request for support services. At any point during the registration process, you may contact the Disability Services for Students office to schedule an in-person or phone appointment. We encourage students who do not have documentation to initiate the interactive process.
Self identify with Disability Services for Students. Complete the online request for services form and upload documentation if you have it available. When you submit the form, you will receive an auto generated confirmation.
You will receive an email from a DSS access coordinator within five business days of receipt of your request for service providing information on the next steps. Your coordinator will be your point of contact with our office. The email, sent to your IU account, may indicate you are eligible for services based on your documentation, that we need more information, or that you should call to speak with your coordinator.
For guidance on required documentation, please see documentation guidelines. You may submit documentation at a later time, but you will ultimately need this prior to establishing eligibility.
Schedule a meeting with your access coordinator once you are approved for services. Be sure to check your IU email, as this is our only means of communicating the need for a meeting.
Meet with your coordinator. During your first meeting, you will discuss your request for services, barriers you experience in your academics, academic accommodations, and other support, as well as how to set up your university-approved accommodations. This meeting is required to be registered with DSS.
