Request Semester Accommodations


To formally request accommodations, students need to submit a Semester Accommodation Request via Accommodate each academic semester. Students with an Eastern Connecticut State University Banner ID number can request an accommodation by submitting a Semester Accommodation Request by logging into the ECSU Accommodate Symplicity Portal. This new system allows you to select the accommodation(s) you are requesting to utilize for each of your classes.

Registered OAS students must request accommodation(s) each semesterYou must request accommodations for each academic semester using the process outlined below. Should your schedule change, you are responsible for requesting accommodations for your new classes using the same process. If you register with the OAS mid-semester, you will also request accommodations using the same process.

Current and sufficient documentation must be on file with the OAS in order to process requested accommodations. If you have any questions, you can email AccessAbility@easternct.edu

Once you have successfully submitted your accommodations through the Eastern Accommodate Symplicity portal, the OAS emails a Letter of Accommodation (LOA) to each of your professor(s) for the class you are utilizing the accommodation(s). 

Please note: 

Accommodations are not retroactive.

The Accommodate system recognizes your legal name; however, the OAS tries to ensure your preferred name is on the Letters of Accommodations sent to your professors by editing your preferred name. Please know the OAS honors your preferred name in all other contexts whenever possible.
