Welcome to the fall 2022 semester, incoming Corsairs!

If you wish to receive accommodations, you will need to self-disclose to us by calling to make an appointment to speak with one of the directors – 508.999.8711. The earliest you can do this is about a week before the start of classes.  You can also wait until you are on campus to schedule an appointment. If no one answers the phone, please leave a message and someone will get back to you!

Documentation can be brought with you to your appointment, sent to our email address (access_success@umassd.edu), faxed - 508.910.6691, or mailed. Our website has a lot of useful information including differences between high school and college, study and skill building videos, and more.

If you have any questions regarding documentation, please see our documentation guidelines. The most common accommodations offered are extended time on exams/quizzes in a reduced distraction environment and recording lectures, but accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

You are invited!

The Center of Access and Success (CAS) offers new incoming students a jump-start to their college careers. Our virtual workshop on Wednesday, July 27 at 11:00am will assist you in areas related to college transitioning. You will learn about expectations of professors, resources to utilize on campus, your student responsibilities, and tips to improve your college success. (Including but not limited to time management, self-advocacy, learning to become interdependent learners, and more.) 

If you are an incoming student who plans on registering with the Center and want to start your fall 2022 semester strong, please email access_success@umassd.edu to register for this virtual workshop! 

Start building your bridge towards success! We look forward to meeting you.

 

Welcome Returning CAS members!

Please remember, you need to register for your accommodations each semester.  Please make your appointment to meet with one of our directors.

We look forward to working with all of you!
