Visit with the ADA Coordinator

The ADA Coordinator will want to talk with the student about their disability. This discussion will be used to hear about the student’s understanding of their disability, the obstacles it presents for them, and what has and has not worked for them in the past. Students should be prepared to answer and discuss “How does your disability affect your ability to learn?”


The ADA Coordinator will generate a Letter of Accommodation (LOA) for the student.

  • The LOA is an agreement between the ADA Coordinator and the student on the accommodations for the student.
  • The LOA is also the document that students use to get accommodations from their instructors.

The student takes the LOA to their instructors.

Until the instructor receives the LOA, they will not provide the student with any accommodations.


Students should come back to the ADA Coordinator every semester for a new LOA.

This provides the student with a disability an opportunity to share any pertinent information with the ADA Coordinator: How the accommodations were received by instructors, how the instructors followed through with granting the accommodations, how the accommodations worked for the student, what accommodations are not needed, and/or what accommodations should be utilized for the next semester.
