Complete the registration steps in order:

1. Complete a Registration Form. This step helps us get the process started so we can identify appropriate accommodations for the semester.

2. Document Your Disability. This step focuses on providing us with diagnostic documentation about your disability.

3. Request a Digital Letter to Professors. This step ensures that your professors are properly informed about the accommodations for which you have been deemed eligible by DSS.


Please register with DSS to ensure that your accommodations are appropriately and efficiently communicated to university faculty and other necessary parties, including GW Housing, Student Health or other relevant parts of university operations. Note: It takes at minimum 1-2 weeks to process registration requests.
