New Users

  1. We will not review your request until we have received proper documentation supporting your disability. Please contact us if you have any questions.
  2. Once your request has been updated you will receive an automatic email from ability@usc.edu. You can then login to review the status of your request.
  3. If recommended for accommodations you can then print your accommodation letters for the semester. This can be done by clicking on “View Current Requests”.
  4. Accommodation letters must be shared with each professor and/or appropriate departmental contact person. We recommend printing two copies for each course so you can retain your own copy signed/dated by the professor and/or departmental contact.

Returning Users

  1. Your profile information should be updated regularly.
  2. Accommodation requests will need to be made for each semester you wish to use them.
  3. If new/updated documentation will be required you will be able to see when your documentation is good through. If additional documentation will not be needed then your good through term will be listed for the year 3000 or after as a default.
  4. So long as you are requesting accommodations already approved then you will be able to continue straight through to printing your own letters after entering your courses.
  5. If you request a new accommodation then your documentation will need to be reviewed.
  6. When your accommodation requests have been updated you will automatically be emailed.
