What is a “Letter” or “Accommodation Memo”?

A “Letter” or “Memo” is an official document used to facilitate communication between Accessibility Resource Center (ARC), students, and faculty.   Specifically, a student enrolled with ARC will hand each of their professors a Letter or Memo that officially indicates that student is registered with ARC and delineates the legally required classroom accommodations in detail.   The Letter/Memo is intended to initiate conversation between the professor and student; therefore, ARC encourages students to self-advocate via open communication with their professors. The accommodations will not begin until the student has a discussion with professors about their letters.

The Letter/Memo does not disclose the nature of the disability.   It is the student’s right and preference as to whether or not they would like to disclose the nature of the disability to their professors and other faculty and staff.
