Course sharing and cross enrollment: Requesting accommodations as a visiting student with a disability

Students with disabilities wishing to utilize their home institution’s approved accommodations as a visiting student at a host institution should reach out to their host institution’s disability services office. Students should follow the initial steps outlined by each institution to request an accommodation plan and should then provide a copy of their home institution’s accommodation letter in lieu of submitting third-party documentation. 

Students will meet with a representative from their host institution to learn more about differences between campus procedures related to accommodation implementation and to obtain their accommodation letter. In the event that a student chooses to transfer to the host institution, additional documentation and meetings may be required.
