Fall Semester

The Center for Access and Success (CAS) is excited to welcome you to the fall 2020 semester! New students seeking accommodations should call the Center at 508.999.8711 to schedule an appointment.  If no one answers, please leave a message with your name, phone number, student ID, and the reason for your call. Staff will be checking the voicemail remotely throughout the day. CAS staff will return your call in the order that it is received. Please email CAS with any questions at access_success@umassd.edu and a CAS staff member will respond within 48 hours during business hours Monday thru Friday.

Returning students already registered with CAS that are seeking accommodation notification for their professors should email CAS at access_success@umassd.edu and a staff member will email instructions on how to proceed.

In order to meet safety standards for students and CAS staff, when registering for services, all intake appointments are conducted by Zoom or by phone. We look forward to working with you!
