What We Do
Student Access Center reports to the Morrison Family Associate Vice President for Student Well-being within the Division of Student Life at Kansas State University. We serve the campus community by partnering with students, faculty, and staff to create accessible environments and provide academic and housing accommodations. We welcome the opportunity for you to get to know us better by exploring our website or by contacting us directly.
Student Access Center is dedicated to the ideals of equal access to campus programs and services for all students. We believe that these ideals contribute to a supportive and inclusive learning environment, which allows students the opportunity to learn. We recognize that disability is an integral facet of the human experience. As such, we collaborate with students, instructors, staff, and community members to foster a universal-design approach to learning.
Students New to SAC
We are happy to meet with students at any point during this process. 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 with testing accommodations should review the testing accommodations webpage for information on scheduling exams with the SAC Testing Office.
Students who have a temporary disability may qualify for temporary accommodations. The initial process is the same as outlined above for new students.
