Requesting Accommodations

Registering with Student Disability Services (SDS)

Although students who have disabilities are not required to register with Student Disability Services (SDS), those who wish to use accommodations must be registered with SDS. Students are encouraged to contact SDS upon admission to NCCU to begin the registration process.

(1) To begin your registration process for Student Disability Services, go to the Public Accommodation Intake online form. At the end of that form, there is a place to upload a copy of your documentation of disability/diagnosis from an appropriately qualified provider. If you prefer to submit your documentation in another way, please see number 2, below. Eligibility must be established before services can be provided.

The Forms are located on under the Forms Tab on the SDS webpage.

If you are requesting accommodations due to Autism Spectrum Disorder, you can download the Services for Students with ASD verification form.

If you are requesting accommodations due to a psychological or learning disorder, you can download the Services for Students with ADHD and Psychological Disorders form.

If you are requesting accommodations due to a Blindness or Low Vision, you can download the Services for Student with Blindness and Low Vision form.

If you are requesting accommodations due to a Medical or Physical Disability, you can download the Services for Student with Medical or Physical Disability form.

If you are requesting accommodations due to a temporary condition (such as pregnancy) or medical injury, you can download the Services for Student with Temporary Disabilities form.

(2) If you cannot submit your supporting documentation through our online system you may deliver it in person, fax, mail, or email at dostewart@nccu.edu.

(3) Once the registration form and documentation are received, they will be reviewed by the Office staff. Please allow up to 1-week processing time, as we have many files to review.

(4) Once your file has been reviewed, you will receive an email to meet with a staff member to do the intake interview.

At the intake appointment you will discuss:

  • Accommodations and services
  • Campus and local resources
  • SDS policies and procedures
  • Student responsibilities

Students are welcome to meet with SDS staff members for questions or concerns year-round. We are here to assist you and will provide resources or information to help you achieve your academic goals.

Semester Requests

A Semester Accommodation Request must be completed for each semester a student is enrolled and seeking accommodations. The Semester Accommodation Request can be completed and submitted to SDS through Accommodate. Click “Student Accommodate Login”  to access Accommodate.

The Semester Request form can be found under the Accommodation tab.

To begin the Semester Accommodation Request, click “Request Accommodation” at the bottom left.

After clicking the “Request Accommodation,” you should be directed to the Accessibility Accommodation Request screen.

Select the semester you are requesting the accommodations for.

Once you select the semester, your classes for that semester will appear.

Then, you will need to select the accommodation that you want to receive

  • Only your approved accommodations will be listed.
  • The system will require you to address each accommodation separately.
  • You will have the option to request additional accommodations.

Select the course(s) you would like the accommodation for.

If you have more than one accommodation that you are requesting, select “Request Additional Accommodation” at the bottom of the form. In order to receive additional accommodations, you must meet with a staff member and may be asked to present additional documentation.

Testing Accommodations

Quiz/Exam Administration is provided to students who are registered with Student Disability Services and have been approved for testing accommodations. Students may schedule their quizzes/exams at anytime during the semester. SDS requires 3 full business days advance notice in order to ensure testing space availability and to ensure we are in receipt of the quizzes/tests. SDS encourages scheduling all quizzes and exams as soon as they are known; the course syllabus often has all dates listed for the semester.

NCCU complies with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all programs and activities (including sexual harassment and sexual violence) in the University's educational programs and activities. For additional resources or to file a Title IX complaint, visit the NCCU's Title IX webpage.
