Service Request FAQ

Why do I need to submit a Service Request?

Submitting a Service Request is how you receive your accommodations.

When do I need to submit a Service Request?

  • Every semester you are enrolled, turn in the Service Request form at least two weeks before your classes begin.
  • It is a good practice to submit your service request as soon as you are enrolled in classes and your schedule is set (i.e. during your priority registration). Please be aware that Accommodation Letters (Instructor Notifications) will be e-mailed to professors no earlier than one week before classes begin.
  • If you are turning in your service request after classes begin, allow DSPS staff at least five working days to process your service request.
  • If your accommodations include staff (note-takers, scribes, lab assistants, and sign language interpreters, real-time captioner (RTC)), equipment, or table/chair seating, submit this form at least one month before your classes begin.
  • DSPS staff will e-mail Accommodation Letters (Instructor Notifications) to your professors and copy you on the e-mail.
