Academic Adjustment Request Process


Student Accessibility Services will not automatically contact faculty members regarding academic adjustments. Each semester, students approved for academic adjustments must request electronic academic adjustment letters be sent to their faculty members through Accommodate. SAS recommends students request academic adjustments letters two to three weeks before a semester starts. Once academic adjustment letters are requested, the student is responsible for following the appropriate guidelines and procedures. Students who would like to request additional academic adjustments should schedule a time to meet with an Accessibility Specialist.

Students should follow the process below to request electronic academic adjustment letters. Once letters are sent to instructors, SAS recommends the student set up a meeting to discuss their academic adjustments with each faculty member.

Step One: Go to https://shibboleth-gcc-accommodate.symplicity.com/sso/

Step Two: Enter your MyCommnet username (i.e. 01234567@student.commnet.edu) and password

Step Three: Click “Accommodation” tab from the left navigation menu. If you do not see a menu, look at the top of the screen and click the three lines to view the menu. Select “Semester Request” from the options that appear.

Step Four: To make a request for this semester, scroll down and click “Add New” button.

Step Five: Under the blue box showing your approved accommodations, select current semester on the left.

Step Six: Your currently enrolled classes will show on the right. (Note: Accommodate takes 24 hours to update course schedules. If you have recently added a class but do not yet see it listed, please wait until the following day to make your request). Select “Review The Renewal”. Review your semester academic adjustment letter request. If you do not need an academic adjustment in a particular class, please unselect the class. Please make sure you review each and every accommodation and deselect any classes that you do not need.

Step Seven: Once the Accessibility Accommodation Request is complete, click Submit.

Note: Academic adjustment letters are not automatically created each semester. You MUST request academic adjustment letters at the start of each semester through the process outlined above. SAS recommends you request academic adjustment letters 2 – 3 weeks before the semester starts. Should you change your schedule, you are responsible for requesting academic adjustment letters for new classes through the same process. Once letters are requested, you are responsible for following the established Guidelines and Procedures for your specific academic adjustments.
