Disability services in high school and college

It is typical for high school students to work with an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 plan implementation team to make sure the accommodations are approved and met.

At Augustana College, students submit the Accommodations Request Form and one form of documentation.

Students who are approved for accommodations will receive an accommodations letter via email. From that point on, the accommodations process varies depending on the type of accommodations.

Academic accommodations

Students will need to present the accommodations letter to all of their instructors so they can provide the approved accommodations. 

It is important for students to speak with their instructors early in the term, ideally in the first week of the term and at least seven days in advance of needing the accommodations. 

If students do not give sufficient advance notice, the college may not be able to provide the requested accommodations. 
Many academic accommodations require time to coordinate. For example, in order to provide a separate and quiet room to take a test, instructors will need to reserve a room and find a proctor available for the testing time.

Submitting the request form and supporting documentation early will help ensure that you will receive the needed accommodations.

If we deny any part of your request, you will receive an email explaining why your request is denied.

Housing accommodations

The assistant director of Residential Life will work with students who need housing accommodations. It is important that students check their email to make sure they receive the necessary information. 

Other accommodations

The dean of students will work with the students who need other accommodations that do not fall under academic or housing accommodations. It is important that students check their email to make sure they receive the necessary information.
