Requesting Accessibility Services
UT Tyler Student Accessibility and Resources
A student who would like to be considered for accommodation services must request services through Student Accessibility and Resources. The student requesting services should fill out the New Student application through SAR Online Services, and if possible, upload any supporting documentation.
To help ensure accommodations the first week of classes, students are encouraged to submit application and documentation at least four weeks prior to the beginning of the semester.
After the application and documentation has been received the student will receive an e-mail directing them to make an appointment with a case manager or ADA coordinator. A personal history interview with the student and the case manager is necessary in order to provide proper accommodations or assess what type of documentation may be needed in order to proceed with determining eligibilities.
Supporting documentation is strongly encouraged and in some cases may be necessary to determine eligibility. If the student has any of the documentation listed below it is important that they submit it to the SAR office for the case manager to review.
Most psychological, psychiatric or chronic illness will need supporting documentation. There may be need for new and/or relevant documentation to be obtained at the student's expense. If this is the case, the student will be informed by the case manager.
Supporting documentation must be from an appropriate qualified professional who has particular expertise in the area of the condition/disability.
