COVID-19: Fall 2020 plans and student resources ›

Requesting Accommodations

Due to the recent Covid-19 pandemic we have updated some of our processes regarding scheduling and contact. The updated information is provided below.

All Augsburg students have been accepted to the university based on their ability to succeed academically and are required to meet the same academic and technical standards. Disability Resources (CLASS) provides accommodations and academic support to students with disabilities or temporary conditions. Each student’s requests will be evaluated on an individual basis.

How to request accommodations:

  1. Schedule an appointment with a Disability Specialist in the CLASS Office: online via Schedule Once, or by emailing our office at class@augsburg.edu.
  2. Meet with the Disability Specialist to discuss the impact of the disability in the Augsburg environment.
  3. Provide documentation of your disability. Documentation should be from an appropriate professional, such as a doctor, psychologist, licensed therapist, psychiatrist, etc. Documentation should include:
    1. Diagnosis.
    2. Impact of the disability within the Augsburg environment.
    3. Recommendations for academic adjustments or accommodations.

first meeting – What to expect

During your first meeting, a CLASS specialist will talk with you about what brings you to our office and listen to your concerns. They will then describe what our office does and why. The specialist will ask questions about your situation and your disability so the two of you can figure out what barriers you are facing and what we may be able to put in place to help minimize those barriers and ensure equal opportunity for you at Augsburg. We will work with you to plan for any next steps and refer you to other resources, where appropriate.

If you have information about your disability from a therapist, doctor, or other licensed professional, it’s helpful if you can email it ahead of time to class@augsburg.edu, fax it to 612-330-1137 or bring it with you to the meeting. If not, we still will talk with you about your concerns and next steps.

Documentation may include, but is not limited to, an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), 504 Plan, neuropsychological assessment, psychoeducational testing report, letter from your provider. If you do not have documentation readily available, you may have your provider fill out our Verification Form (see Sources for Documentation).

The purpose of documentation is to assist in providing information and understanding about how the courses or facilities might present barriers and to what degree the disability affects you, and to plan for accommodations to facilitate access.
