The Goldman Center for Student Accessibility has a process in place for undergraduate, graduate and professional students who wish to be considered for reasonable accommodations. Students, including those registered in online programs, can request accommodations at any time. However, for incoming fall semester students, we recommend beginning the process in the summer before arriving on campus. The process can sometimes take several weeks, so begin it as soon as you are able!
The process begins by connecting with our Center, using the “Request Accommodations” buttons on our home page. After completing our online form, please submit any documentation supporting your request. Review the Guidelines for Documentation for more information. At any time in the process, feel free to contact the Goldman Center for a telephone or in-person meeting to further discuss your accommodation needs.
After our Center has received your request and your documentation, you will be contacted by a Goldman Center staff person to set up a Welcome Meeting. Meetings can be held remotely (by Zoom video chat or by phone) or in person based on the student’s preference.
When you arrive on campus, make sure to meet with one of our staff members to activate and implement any approved accommodations.
Any communication or documentation can be submitted to the Goldman Center via email firstname.lastname@example.org, fax (504-862-8435) or regular mail (Goldman Center for Student Accessibility, 6823 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70118). The Housing Request Provider Form, listed on the right, can be utilized to attain documentation from your provider, if necessary.
Each semester, remember to request to have your accommodations activated. This process lets the Goldman Center know that you are enrolled this semester and intend use your accommodations. Remember, you don't have to use your accommodations in every class.
Once you have submitted your activation requests, the Goldman Center will send emails to each of the professors in the classes where you have elected to use your accommodations.
Watch the videos below to learn more about your accommodations.
If you have Testing Accommodations, remember to check with your professors to determine how they would like to manage those accommodations.
