Request Accommodations

Accessible Education Services (AES) is a semi-centralized model. Efforts to accommodate students with disabilities are coordinated through the AES, but at the same time, much of the implementation is carried out by the students themselves. Students who wish to exercise their right to accommodations (provisions made to allow equal access to University programs) must follow the following procedure:

  1. Contact the program manager
  2. Complete the Accommodation Request Form
  3. Provide documentation including Disability Specific Questionnaire
  4. Submit documentation by email to or fax at 503.943.7530
  5. Evaluation, recommendation, and plan
  6. Implement your accommodations

Before classes start, set up appointments to meet with your professors, preferable during their office hours. Talk about your disability, and present each professor with an accommodation letter. Then develop a plan for the semester. If you've been approved for exam accommodations, bring the exam accommodation form with you so your professor can complete their section.

If you've been approved for alternative text accommodations, exam accommodations, or note takers, you are strongly encouraged to attend an AES Training Session at the beginning of each semester.
