Step 2: Share Your VISA With Instructors

Before using any kind of in-class or testing accommodations in a given course students are required to notify the instructor by sharing with them the Verification of Individual Student Accommodation (VISA) letter. The VISA will list all the classroom and/or testing accommodations for which a student is approved. If a student chooses not to share their VISA with their course instructors then the instructor will have no basis for providing accommodations.

Students are highly encouraged to share the VISA with their course instructors during the first week of classes. Waiting until late in the semester to share the VISA with instructors may jeopardize a student’s ability to use accommodations. The VISA can be shared through email or as a hard copy. Please take note of your instructors’ policies regarding how the VISA is shared.
