Welcome to Spring 2020!
We hope your break has been restful and relaxing and you are ready to start the spring semester with new energy and excitement!
Request Your Accommodation Letters
Go ahead and request your Accommodation Letters. It often takes us a full 5 business days to process letter requests at the start of the semester so get your requests in early!
SSD can only process requests that match your enrollment so please be sure to check your request carefully!
Course Load Reduction/Full Time Status
If you plan to take less than full time amount of hours and need full time status email your coordinator with the following information: 1) how many hours you plan to take, 2) who needs to be notified about full time status (Office of Financial Aid, Campus Employment, Campus Housing, etc.). Your coordinator then will draft and send letters to the appropriate offices to verify your full time status.
