Registering with DAS

Students are encouraged to begin the registration process as early as possible.  Depending on your schedule and when documentation is received this process can sometimes take up to 3-4 weeks.  DAS is currently processing all Summer 2021 students.  Fall 2021 Incoming students are encouraged to submit your materials by July 1, 2021 to guarantee your accommodation plan will be finalized by the beginning of classes.

Important:  Please note emails from DAS will only be sent to your Emory email, monitor your account for important updates and information. 

How to Register

Complete the Student Registration Form. Google Chrome web browser is strongly recommended. This form enables students to detail their disability, past services, and needed accommodations from their own perspective. In addition, this is helpful as an introduction to DAS staff.

  • Submit documentation about your disability and/or past use of accommodations that will assist DAS in considering your request by one of the following methods: upload directly to Accommodate, fax (404.727.1126) or, email to accessibility@emory.edu.  Typically, documentation is from an appropriate, licensed professional who is able to detail the presence of the disability, its impact on the student’s learning or other major life activity, and relevant details to support the student’s request for accommodations.  Some examples include medical records/letter from a physician or psychologist, psychoeducational assessment/evaluation, and school records.  For the convenience of practitioners, verification forms have also been developed that may be completed for ADHD/ADD, Chronic Medical or Physical Disabilities, and/or Mental Health. If you do not have any documentation, these forms are available for download in the Forms section.  All documentation received is confidential and is kept in a private file at Accessibility Services.
  • For Fall 2021 Incoming Students, your materials will be reviewed beginning July 1st.  Students will receive a response in a timely manner with one of the following application statuses:
    • Approved Accommodations:  When a student’s request for reasonable accommodations have been approved, the student will schedule a “Welcome Session” with their assigned Student Access Coordinator to finalize the process of receiving their accommodations.  Beginning August 16, these meetings will be scheduled via phone or Teams; whatever is easiest for the student. Once you receive notification of approval, visit the Announcements section of Accommodate for the scheduling link. During this meeting, there will be a review of how to implement the approved accommodations, and assist the student in completing the Accommodation Letter request via Accommodate.
    • More Information Needed:  When a student’s request for reasonable accommodations cannot be approved due to the fact that additional information is needed to substantiate the need for reasonable accommodations, the student will be notified that they will need to schedule a follow-up meeting with a DAS staff member.
    • Application Not Approved:  When a student’s request for reasonable accommodations is not approved, DAS will contact the student to explain the rationale for the denial and discuss next steps, if applicable.
