First-year and transfer students may apply for accommodations once admitted to the University of South Florida. Current students may apply at any time, however accommodations are not retroactive. Students are responsible for identifying themselves to SDS and present proper medical documentation to receive academic accommodations.
Students must complete the online Application for Accommodations and supply supporting medical documentation. Documentation can be submitted through one of the following:
- Attached to the Application for Accommodations in electronic format (e.g. PDF, DOC)
- Emailed to: SA-SDS-Information@usf.edu
- Faxed to: (813) 974-7337
- Hand delivered to SDS office (SVC 1133)
- Mailed to: Students with Disabilities Services, 4202 East Fowler Avenue, SVC 1133, Tampa FL 33620.
The review process takes 7-10 days to review application and supporting medical documentation, then a coordinator will e-mail the student's @mail.usf.edu email account to set up an intake appointment. Intake appointments are approximately 1 hour, and must be completed before accommodations are approved.
