Academic Accommodations

Three individuals walking and one individual in a wheelchair walking through Heritage Halls.

Accommodations are modifications in the classroom and test environment that provide students with disabilities equal access to academic opportunities.

To review the process for establishing accommodations see "Getting Started."

To renew accommodations previously established with the Accessibility Center, please submit the Accommodation Letter Request Form at the beginning of each semester. While accommodation letter renewals can also be requested in person, over the phone, or via email, the most efficient way to request them is on our website. No appointments are necessary unless changes in accommodations are desired. Depending on the demand, accommodation letters may take anywhere between 2 days to 1 week to process. Once they are processed, they will be sent to your BYU student email address. Please note that the email may get filtered into your spam or junk folder. If you do not see them please check with our front desk regarding letter status.

Please follow the instructions below:

  1. You will access your electronic letters through your BYU student email address.
    1. When your letters are ready, you will receive an email with links to each letter.
  2. Click on the link(s) within the email to access your accommodation letters.
    1. You will be able to view the letters online.
    2. You will send your letters by granting electronic access to the primary instructor(s) of your course(s) when you desire.
    3. If you would also like to hand-deliver hard copy letters to your instructors, download the letters as PDFs and print them out.
    • You can track when you have sent a letter to a professor and when the professor has read the letter on the left hand column of the screen.
    • Although letter delivery will be electronic, we still encourage direct communication with your instructor in the interactive process, particularly if your accommodations require coordination with your instructor (e.g., determining a reasonable number of absences up front if you have leniency with absences; determining optimal seating if you have preferred seating; etc.).
