New student registration and supporting documentation will be reviewed beginning in mid-June. Students are encouraged to begin the application process as early as possible.

Once our office has reviewed your documentation, we will contact you if any information is missing or needs updating. We look for evaluations that have been done within the last two years (age 16+) using adult measures. Our director will contact you over the summer to discuss and finalize your accommodations once all relevant documentation is received.

Accommodative Services Orientations and Parent Info Session

Accommodative Services is excited to offer multiple opportunities for you to familiarize yourself with our office and learn how your specific accommodations will be implemented:

  • Accommodative Services Orientation -- We strongly encourage you to attend one of our two available half-day programs designed specifically for students receiving academic accommodations. Spend an afternoon with the staff of the Accommodative Services Office to learn how to request accommodations each term, how accommodations are implemented and accessed, and how to utilize our office and campus resources. Peer mentors will be available to give additional insights about campus and academic life at Union. A tour of campus study spaces, the Accommodative Services Office and our Testing Center are included.

There are two sessions available (please choose ONE):

  • Tuesday, August 30 (for students participating in a Pre-O experience)
  • Friday, September 2 (for students who are NOT attending Pre-O)

Time: 11:30 am - 5 pm. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

Please sign up for an orientation by Friday, August 12, by completing this Google Form.
