Information for Current Students
After registering with ACCESS, you will get a form called an Accommodation Memo. The memo informs your professors that you are registered with ACCESS and lists your accommodations. It does NOT mention the specific disability, and you are not obligated to disclose that information to your professor.
Accommodation Memos are semester specific and are only valid for the term that it was issued. To activate your accommodations each semester, you must request a new Accommodation Memo from ACCESS.
To request a copy of your Accommodation Memo, sign into the Student Health Portal.
- You will use your Mercy credentials to log in
- Click on the "Accommodations" option-Term Request
- Request Accommodations needed for each course
- Download and send a copy to your instructor
Don't forget to present an updated memo to your professors EACH academic term. You should do this within the first 1-2 weeks of the academic term.
Have your professor review the memo and sign at the bottom. Once you have your signed memos, you can scan and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
