  2. A DSPS faculty member will review the information with the student and approve those accommodations or services that are warranted due to the limitations caused by the student's disability.
  3. An Accommodations Form will be completed for each student listing the accommodations and/or services that are appropriate for that student.
  4. For those accommodations or services that will be provided for a specific course, an Accommodations Memo will be completed and taken by the student to the professor detailing the accommodation. Disability information is confidential and may not be shared with course professors unless written permission is given by the student.
