Please note: OSWD policies concerning Faculty Accommodation Letters are changing during the 2018-2019 academic year, so the following is obsolete, to be replaced as soon as new policies have been established.
Upon acceptance for OSWD services, a release-of-information form will be obtained from the student so a Faculty Accommodation Letter can be distributed to faculty in classes where the student is requesting accommodations. In the past, delays occurred in sending information to faculty because OSWD had to wait for students to sign each form. Consequently, in order to avoid unnecessary delays, OSWD will ask students to sign a one-year release allowing OSWD to send each faculty member a Faculty Accommodations Letter without the student's specific signature.
