Student Access Center Forms

Registration and Renewal

First-time SAC Applications

Students with an initial request for disability services may log in to Spelman’s Patient Portal to submit all documentation supporting academic and/or housing accommodation requests. Please submit all documents via the Portal no later than June 30.

Once all required documentation is submitted via the Portal, please allow up to five business days for Student Access Center staff to process your request(s).

Academic Accommodation Requests

Please complete and upload the following forms, via the Portal:

  • Application (PDF): Complete this form for your initial request for disability services.
  • Release of Information (PDF)
  • Verification Form (PDF): To be completed by student’s healthcare provider and uploaded into this system. Must be dated within one year. (Student Access Center staff may request additional comprehensive documentation to support accommodation requests, reviewed on a case by case basis.)
  • Academic Accommodation Policies & Procedures (PDF): To be completed at the start of each academic year ONLY by students requesting academic accommodations.
  • Additional comprehensive evaluation/testing to support your request(s)

NOTE: Please monitor your Spelman email for a notification from SAC to schedule an appointment with an Access Specialist.

Housing Accommodation Requests

Please complete and upload the following forms, via the Portal:

  • Application: Complete this form for your initial request for disability services.
  • Release of Information
  • Verification Form: To be completed by student’s healthcare provider and uploaded into this system. Must be dated within one year. (Student Access Center staff may request additional comprehensive documentation to support accommodation requests, reviewed on a case by case basis.)
  • Additional comprehensive evaluation/testing to support your request(s)

NOTE: The sooner SAC receives all required documentation supporting your request(s), the greater the likelihood that your accommodation can be met. The ability for Housing to meet your request is based upon what types of residence hall rooms remain unassigned when your request is approved by SAC.

You will receive a direct email notice from SAC indicating your approval or denial and next steps. If approved, Housing & Residence Life will then contact you via email with additional details regarding approved housing accommodations. If denied, you will receive information regarding reasoning behind your denial and instructions to appeal if you should decide to do so.


Returning SAC Students

Students with previously approved accommodations may log in to Spelman’s Patient Portal and follow the instructions below, according to the nature of their request(s).

Once all required documentation is submitted via the Portal, please allow up to five business days for Student Access Center staff to process your request(s).

Academic Accommodations

Students with previously approved academic accommodations may complete the following forms at the start of each academic year, and upload all completed forms via the Portal:

NOTE: Once it is determined that all required documentation is up to date and submitted to our office, your instructors will receive your Accommodation Letter via Spelman Arch. Please notify SAC of any changes made to your course schedule after the first day of classes to ensure that all appropriate faculty are in receipt of your Letter.

Housing Accommodations

Students with previously approved housing accommodations may review details of their housing accommodation approval(s) under “Individual Student Needs” on the Housing Dashboard.

Only students requesting renewal of, or changes to their previously approved housing accommodations should complete the following form(s) and submit via the Portal:
