Accommodation Letter Request Form
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE COMPLETING.
Please complete this form to request your customized Accommodation Letter Packet for the CURRENT or IMMEDIATELY UPCOMING semester. Your registration with the DRC must be COMPLETE before you request your Accommodation Letters.
Submitting this Request Form notifies us that you are intending to use your approved accommodations for the semester indicated and that you are aware that all of your Instructors for that semester will receive notification that you are affiliated with our office as a student who has accommodations. It is your responsibility to complete this request for EACH SEMESTER.
If you have questions or concerns about this process, please contact a DRC Counselor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM APPROVED TO HAVE ACCOMMODATIONS?
Students must have COMPLETED an Access Plan Meeting, submitted their documentation, and received an email from one of our DRC Counselors telling them their Accommodation Plan is approved. The subject line of that email is "DRC Accommodation Approval". This email is sent only to your official NWACC.edu email address.
WHAT IS AN ACCOMMODATION LETTER?
An Accommodation Letter is a document that details your approved accommodation plan. It is written as a letter to your INSTRUCTORS. Once you submit your request, DRC staff will review and process the request, and then email your Accommodation Letter, along with some instructions, to both you and your Instructor for each NWACC course in which you are enrolled. You and your Instructor will use this document as a tool to discuss your accommodations and how they will be put into place for that specific course.
The email from DRC is not sufficient to activate your accommodations. Because the course expectations and requirements will be different for each course, you must discuss this with each instructor. The email will include a reminder that you, the student, must follow up. If you are concerned about having that conversation on your own, you can request assistance from a DRC Counselor.
⇒ If you are a returning NWACC DRC student, you may be used to picking up a packet of printed letter(s) from the DRC office. We have shifted to an entirely digital process that does not require this step. Even if you are on campus for one or more of your classes, there is no need to come to the DRC for your packet. You will receive your Accommodation Letters via your NWACC email.
WHEN WILL MY LETTERS BE SENT TO MY INSTRUCTORS?
Accommodation Letters will begin being sent a week before classes start each semester.
1) Emails will be sent in the order in which requests are received.
2) We require 3 business days to process your request.
3) If there is an issue with processing your request, a member of our staff will reach out to you via your NWACC email.
4) You must enter your NWACC email address in the form below. You must include the “@nwacc.edu” in the NWACC Email Address section when submitting this form. Remember that your NWACC email address is the official means of communication for the College, and it is important that you check your NWACC email regularly.
