Students with DSP Accommodations
Once you've received approval for your accommodation(s), the DSP's job is far from over. We'll work with you to ensure effective implementation of the accommodation(s), and facilitate your access to the myriad resources our DSP office provides.
On this page, you'll be directed to the most important tool in your DSP arsenal — the Accommodate Portal. You'll also find helpful information on utilizing the DSP Testing Center and the LARRK Assistive Technology Lab, requesting additional accommodations, filing grievances and accommodation appeals, and more!
How to Request Additional Accommodations
Did you know you can request additional accommodations online via the Accommodate Portal? Log in, open the "Accommodation Details" tab, select "Additional Accommodation Request," and choose "Add New." Then, simply complete the form, attach any necessary Supportive Documentation, and you're done!
Remember to Renew Your Housing Accommodations
Alongside your housing contract with the Office of Housing & Residential Education (HRE), your DSP housing accommodations must also be renewed each year via the Accommodate Portal. Log in, open the "Accommodation Details" tab, select "Additional Accommodation Request," and choose "Add New." Then, simply complete the form, attach any necessary Supportive Documentation, and you're done!
Know Your DSP Resources
DSP Testing Center
The Testing Center administers accommodated exams for students with qualifying LOAAs.

Grievances and Accommodation Appeals
If you believe your request for accommodation(s) or applicable academic adjustments was unfairly denied by the DSP, or if you disagree with the DSP's decision to approve alternate accommodations or academic adjustments different from those requested, or you are dissatisfied with the implementation of approved accommodations or academic adjustments, you are entitled to file a grievance or accommodation appeal. The DSP strives to resolve all disputes both promptly and equitably.
