Steps to Receiving Accommodations

Steps for how to receive accommodations from the Accessibility Services Office in the Access Portal.
Step 1: Fill out the Application
Login to the Access Portal Login using your BYUI username and password and fill out the application. Don't forget to click on the "Submit" box.
Step 2: Upload Documents
Upon completion of the application, we ask that you provide the most recent documentation from a licensed medical professional that clearly states your diagnosis (IEPs or 504 plans are also accepted). If you have trouble uploading your documentation you can also email, fax, or bring them in with you. You can find our contact information on our contact us page.
Step 3: Wait to be contacted
Once you have completed the first two steps, our office will contact you to schedule an appointment for you to meet with one of our administrators. If you are an online student, the administrator will interview you over the phone. Accommodations will be set up after you meet with the administrator and your disability reviewed.
Step 4: Communicate
Faculty Notification Letters will be emailed to each of your instructors. You must initiate all actions regarding accommodations with each professor, for each course, every semester.
