Welcome back! We are excited you are back for a new quarter, year, and/or program. We are sure you have many questions, so let’s get you started.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to request accommodations each quarter?

Yes! In order to utilize accommodations and have a letter of accommodations available for viewing by your professors, you must request, or Self-register, your accommodations every quarter you plan on using them.

Do I have to make an appointment with my CAE Specialist every quarter?

It is not necessary to schedule an appointment—but you can if you would like to discuss your accommodations or documentation. Please note that your appointment can be in-person or virtual (via Zoom) if you prefer.

Do I have to submit updated documentation every year?

It depends on your disability and the recency of your documentation. Contact your Disability Specialist for more information.

I’ve been away from UCLA and I’m ready to re-enroll—how do I re-establish eligibility for accommodations?

If you have you have not attended UCLA for a quarter or more, you will need to make an appointment with your CAE Specialist to review your accommodations and make adjustments if necessary.

I am receiving provisional accommodations, and they are set to expire soon. What do I need to do in order to continue receiving my accommodations?

In order to continue receiving accommodations, you must demonstrate a continued need for the modifications for which you were previously approved. The CAE may require that you obtain updated medical documentation 30 days prior to your expiry date to expedite the process. The CAE will review documentation when submitted after the 30 days, however, students may experience a lapse in service until the documentation and need for the accommodation is evaluated. If you have questions about the type of documentation needed, please schedule an advising appointment with your Disability Specialist.
