We do not release all the notifications until 2 days prior to the start of classes to ensure they don't get overlooked. Please call our office if you have any questions.

RETURNING, GRADUATE STUDENTS, AND STUDENTS WITH INTERNSHIPS/CLINICALS: Please don't forget to set an appointment with our office to discuss any adjustments to accommodations, clinical or internship accommodations, or Graduate School accommodations as early as you can before the start of the Fall 2024 Semester.
