How Do I Access Disability Services?

Procedures For Requesting Disability Services

Step 1: As early as possible, but no later than three weeks before any instruction begins, contact us at help@professional.ucsb.edu with your written request for Disability Services detailing the specific need and the course/s you need the special services for.

Step 2: The following documentation is required in order to receive Disability Services:

  • A written request outlining your needs and describing your limitations due to disability as covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
  • Written notification on official letterhead from a physician, certified specialist, professional counselor, or appropriate school official verifying your disability and outlining any need for special services. Depending on your needs, additional documentation may be requested.

Step 3: A plan will be determined for providing you with services, and a timeline will be established for when services will begin. Services will only be arranged once you provide payment in full for professional and continuing education course(s).

Note: Written requests that are received later than two weeks before instruction begins may limit our ability to provide you with the requested services in time for the first day of class.
