Welcome to Student Accessibility Services at UVM!
Students with documented disabilities may be eligible for reasonable and appropriate accommodations at UVM. In order to establish themselves as eligible for accommodations through SAS, students should provide documentation (please refer to the documentation guidelines on our website) from a licensed provider and meet with an Accessibility Specialist in SAS to discuss their eligibility and how the accommodations process works at UVM. On the basis of the documentation that was submitted as well as the student’s narrative, SAS determines whether or not a student is eligible to receive accommodations.
We encourage students who think they may qualify for accommodations to contact SAS. Students should generally submit the relevant documentation to SAS prior to scheduling a meeting to allow for sufficient review by an Accessibility Specialist, as this process can take approximately one week.
If students do not have documentation, but think they may qualify for accommodations, they should still contact SAS to make an appointment. SAS can help provide information on where and how to be evaluated for a disability and help a student explore alternative options and strategies for academic support. SAS does not formally diagnose students with disabilities.
