After a student registers with SSWD, they must activate their accommodations each semester.
All current SSWD students must complete the Accommodation Activation for Registered Students Form at the start of each semester. This will notify SSWD that you are an active student and you wish to utilize your accommodations; SSWD will generate a notification letter for you to deliver to your professor(s). Accommodations are not active until faculty receive their notification letter.
