Accessing Letters of Accommodation & Providing Exams

What is the Faculty Portal?

The Faculty Portal is the online data base used by the UCLA Center for Accessible Education (CAE) to collaborate with professors to provide exam accommodations for CAE-registered students. The Faculty Portal allows faculty members to view accommodation letters, provide information on upcoming exams, and upload exams directly to the Portal.

How to Access the Faculty Portal

  1. The Faculty Portal can be accessed via MyUCLA or via the CAE website.
  2. Log in using your UCLA logon and password
  3. Click on "Courses" to initiate the process of uploading your exam, or "Accommodation Letters" to view the students in your courses who have requested that you view their letter.

Courses and Accommodation Letters

Accommodation letters inform you of a student's approved accommodations. Please note that only student's who have requested that you view their letter (via the Student Portal) will have a letter on this screen. The CAE encourages students to make their letters available for viewing as early as possible in the quarter so that you are aware of their accommodations.

"Courses" includes a list of your current courses. The gold star indicates a request for exam accommodations by students in your course. If CAE is proctoring the exam (as opposed to you or your academic department), you will need to provide the exam and exam information to the CAE.
