Transition Tips for New Students

Students who need academic, housing, or dietary accommodations should contact the Office of Student Accessibility & Disability Services to discuss their needs and to submit supporting professional documentation.  Ideally, academic accommodations should be requested prior to the start of the semester for an optimal transition.  Accommodations may be requested at any time but some accommodations require planning time to arrange. During June and July, virtual intake appointments can be arranged upon request.

Housing accommodations should be requested and approved at least 60 days prior to the start of the semester to assure that the appropriate accommodation can be arranged. Accommodations that are approved within that timeframe may be delayed up to one semester depending upon space available.  No ESA requests will be considered between August 1-September 15.

Look for request forms and documentation links on this website, or contact disabilityservices@brevard.edu.
