Students

Beginning in the Fall 2017 semester, the Center for Students with DisABILITIES will provide accommodation forms online. Faculty and students will be receiving additional information through e-mail, presentations, and through our web page.

Students New to CSD

Students who are new to the CSD will create the form during the first meeting with the counselor. After the form is approved, the form can be forwarded to your instructor(s). Afterwards, you need to contact your instructor(s) and wourk out details concerning the accommodations you are requesting.

Students Already Registered with CSD

Students who already have paper accommodation forms will continue using the printed form by coming to CSD and obtaining copies to give to professors. Your counselor will contact you concerning transitioning to an online form.

  3. I don’t have my form (for this semester)!
    Your form is good for a period of time and you can forward the same form to your instructor each semester.

    To view your form, do the following:

    • Login to AccessUH and click on the MyUH Self Service icon.
    • Select the Academic Records tile and choose the CSD AAAA Form from the menu on the left.
    • Choose the View AAEC Approval option on the menu. You may need to hit "Search" to get your form to appear. You can then check to see if the form is current.
    • If your form has expired, please contact your CSD counselor.
  4. In the event that an instructor denies an accommodation…
    Call your CSD counselor and brainstorm the best way to handle the situation.

    Professors are an integral part of the accommodation process because they implement the accommodations.

    They may feel that your accommodation will cause an undue burden to the University of Houston or change the essential nature of the course.
