Dear students, 

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) appreciates the flexibility you've shown in adapting to changes in our office while navigating the larger challenges of online learning. As we approach the next semester, please remember whether you have decided to return to campus for in-person learning or remain virtual, you should renew your LOA by filling out this form.  When you've received your updated LOA from us, please send it to your instructors as soon as possible. 

For the health and safety of our students and staff, our main office will not be available for walk-ins and staff will continue to meet with students on zoom this semester. If you have questions or any needs throughout the semester, sas@jcu.edu will still be the best way to contact us.  

The testing center will also remain closed this semester. If you have testing accommodations, please work with your instructor to receive them.  It is best to be proactive about this, if possible. For example, giving instructors your LOA as soon as possible and discussing your testing accommodations prior to the day of the exam.

If the exam or quiz is on Canvas, instructors will be able to adjust the time just as they have been. If the exam is not on Canvas, you should make arrangements with the instructor for them to proctor and provide the testing accommodations in the classroom and/or academic department. 

Please let us know if you have any questions.

We wish you a healthy and successful semester! 

Thanks again!
Allison
