Prospective SAS Students


Students who require accommodations from Student Accessibility Services must first apply for admission to Florida Atlantic University as a degree seeking or non-degree seeking and be accepted. Once accepted, new students should follow these steps in order to register for support services from this office:

Step 1


    a. To register for SAS services, please log into the portal using your FAU Net ID and password to complete the online Application for Academic Accommodationsand click submit at the bottom when completed.

    b. Remember to upload copies of your college transcripts when registering online using the portal. If less than 60 college credits, you must also upload high school transcripts (unofficial transcripts are acceptable).

    c. Also, upload a copy of your most recent documentation of disability to SAS portal. For documentation guidelines, please refer to the brochure pertaining to your specific disability. Brochures are available in the SAS and  online .

Disability Verification Forms are available online and should be completed by your physician/clinician. Please use the verification form appropriate for your disability. 

Transfer Student: Provide also a letter from your previous institution stating the accommodations that were provided to you.



INTAKE INTERVIEW: You will be called for an intake interview with a SAS consultant after the Application and appropriate documentation have been received and reviewed. This interview will give you an opportunity to meet your SAS consultant. You will be asked to provide information about your experience of disability, barriers you’ve encountered, as well as effective and ineffective prior accommodations. Your appropriate accommodations will then be determined based on an interactive process between you and your SAS consultant. You will also receive information about other support services available at FAU.
