The registration process

Disability Services collaborates with students with documented impairments, conditions and/or disabilities to provide reasonable accommodations, auxiliary aids, and support services that are individualized and based on a person-to-person interview, an assessment of needs, and documentation. In order to request accommodations, students need to complete the following process:

The intake form is available for completion on our Forms and Documents page.  It can be submitted in person or electronically.

In the event that you do not have documentation, contact Disability Services to discuss next steps. Visit Housing, Meal Plans, or ESA for additional information related to these accommodation requests.

Initial intake interviews are scheduled for 1 hour and involve meeting with a Disability Services Specialist to discuss accommodations. The initial intake interview will include:

  • A discussion around the impairment, condition, and/or disability
  • Establishment of reasonable acccommodations (as appropriate)
  • Review and signing of Student Rights and Responsibilities, Consent to Release Information Form, and Testing Center Policies and Procedures (if testing accommodations are established)
  • Provision of Faculty Contact Sheets (if appropriate)

If established, academic accommodations are initiated by students through Faculty Contact Sheets (accommodation letters). Accommodations are not retroactive, meaning that they will be applicable moving forward from the time Faculty Contact Sheets are provided to professors. It is each student’s responsibility to request and distribute Faculty Contact Sheets to instructors with reasonable notice. Students are responsible for communicating any continuing needs with Disability Services. Appointments can be made to update accommodations at any time.

additional information

Once students submit all documentation to begin the registration process, a Disability Services Specialist will review their completed file. Upon review, they will then reach out to students via their Mason email address to schedule the initial intake interview. Students can complete the registration process at any point in their academic career.

The video to the right provides a guided walk-through of the above registration process.
