Update on Student Access Center COVID-19 Operations
We continue to serve students and faculty through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Zoom though our physical office is closed in adherence to university directives. Please note that the situation is fluid and the latest updates are posted at Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Updates.
SAC is committed to providing equal access for students with disabilities to all campus programs and services; promoting awareness about disability-related issues; and collaborating with faculty, staff, and students to ensure appropriate accommodations meet the needs of students in the academic environment.
Students New to SAC
The first step in the accommodation process is to register with the office. If you have documentation to submit, you will be able to do so when you register. Once you are registered and we have supporting documentation, an access advisor will contact you via email to set up an intake appointment. During the appointment, you and the access advisor will discuss appropriate accommodations, the process of requesting letters of accommodations, how to schedule exams (for those with exam accommodations) through the online system, and other campus resources.
Remember to request accommodations for each class in a timely manner. Requests are made through the Student AIM Portal. There is a step-by-step guide available. Any time you add or withdraw from a class, be sure to update your request. Each year you will be asked to complete and submit a Student Annual Agreement located in your AIM dashboard.
Letter of accommodation requests will be available to students prior to the semester and delivery will begin at the start of the semester. After the letter of accommodation has been sent, discuss with your instructor(s) how accommodations will be implemented. We welcome the opportunity to meet with students to answer questions, discuss concerns, or review accommodations.
Students who have a temporary disability may qualify for temporary accommodations. The initial process is the same as outlined above for new students.
We have been experiencing a glitch in the Faculty Portal. The first time you try to log in, you may be unable to do so. On the second try, the system should work. We are continuing to work with the vendor to fix this issue and we appreciate your patience. The Faculty AIM Portal is the conduit that allows instructors to review information regarding accommodations for students enrolled in their courses and registered with the SAC. Once logged in with their K-State credentials, faculty can review accommodation information; complete and submit the Alternative Testing Agreement; and upload exams for students taking exams at the Student Access Center Testing Center (once campus courses resume). For questions or concerns, please contact SAC at email@example.com.
