SAS is now using an online system called Accommodate which will serve as your SAS online portal. This change will ensure our accommodations process is more efficient and will be easier for students to manage.

Instead of emailing an accommodation letter to your professors, you will simply log in to the portal to request that your semester accommodation letter be sent to your professors. 

Your academic accommodations for the current or upcoming semester will not be active until you request your semester letter in Accommodate.

If you are a new student or a returner who has not yet filled out the Initial Accommodation Request form, please do so here to start the request process.

Although your approved accommodations will be available throughout your time at Emerson, each semester you will need to request your semester accommodation letters.

To Request Your Semester Academic Accommodation Letter

Step 1:

Access the SAS Portal

Select “Student”

Use your Emerson credentials to login. 

Note: Screen reader users can toggle on Accessibility Mode by clicking the View Options button in the upper left corner of the screen.

Step 4:

Choose Submit for All to request accommodation letters for all of your courses. 

Step 5:

Your SAS staff member will then confirm the accommodations. Your professors will receive a notification and will be able to access your accommodation letter in Accommodate. You do not need to email a copy of the letter to them. If you wish to request additional accommodations, please reach out to your SAS staff member. 

Please be sure to connect with your professors to discuss your accommodations and learning needs at the beginning of each semester.
