If you are an UMSL student and have a documented disability, Disability Access Services can help you obtain the accommodations you need in order to be successful in your courses.

First, you have to become registered with our office. You can do this at any time during the semester, but we recommend doing it before classes start.

New Students

If you are a new student to Disability Access Services, please follow the step-by-step instructions below.

  1. Complete the Accommodation Request Form.

  2. Contact your medical or mental health provider to request a letter verifying your disability. The letter can be faxed to our office at 314-516-6561. Or, you can log onto the UMSL student health portal and upload a scanned copy of the letter. We can assist you in signing a release and faxing it to your medical professional.

  3. Meet with a DAS staff member to discuss program policies and your accommodations. This ensures that you understand the steps necessary to arrange for accommodations with DAS.

Returning Students

If you are already registered with Disability Access Services and have received services or accommodations, you need not register again. Simply visit the student portal and enter your SSO ID and password. Select "Letters" on the left menu once you've logged in to gain access to your accommodations memo.

Testing Forms

If you are a student who requires testing at the Disability Access Office under the direct supervision of the Coordinator for Student Accommodations/Program Coordinator, then please have the Exam Transmittal Form filled out by your instructor.
