Student Accessibility Support provides a range of supports to graduate students with disabilities.
Requesting Accommodationsrequest Accommodations Now
Disclosing a disability and requesting accommodations are personal decisions. Brandeis does not require you to disclose the existence of a disability, but requesting accommodations does require that you disclose your disability. Be sure to contact SAS as soon as possible to ensure all your accommodations are delivered in a timely manner.
If you are ready to request accommodations, please follow these easy steps:
- Submit your initial request and documentation.
Complete the “Initial Accommodation Request - Graduate Students.” If you do not include disability documentation when completing the form, then please contact us for additional instructions.
- Schedule a meeting.
After completing the request form, email Student Accessibility Support for a meeting.
- Meet with SAS.
Meet with an accessibility specialist to discuss your personal history and the accommodations you are requesting
After the meeting with an accessibility specialist, SAS will prepare a confidential letter for you to take to each instructor, and will help coordinate other services as necessary.
This is a listing of the relevant request forms. All forms are completed online and are confidential.
Grievance or Appeals Procedure
If a student has a concern about a disability accommodation that was denied or only partially granted by Student Accessibility Support (SAS) or a concern about how a disability accommodation (approved by SAS) is being implemented in the classroom, that student may be able to file a grievance.
For more information, see the ADA/Section 504 Student Grievance Process on the Office of Equal Opportunity website.
