Students who identify as having any type of disability are entitled and encouraged to enroll with the Learning/Access Center in order to determine and implement reasonable accommodations.
Once a student has decided to enroll with the L/AC, the first step is to contact us to schedule an introduction appointment with an L/AC advisor to discuss next steps for enrollment, as well as documentation requirements. You can contact us at LAC@pratt.edu or 718.802.3123 to schedule this appointment.
Then, during the enrollment appointment, you will meet with an L/AC advisor, who will answer your questions and who will work with you to identify barriers and set up accommodations, including notifying your professors (with your permission). For Housing and Dining accommodations, there are additional procedures that will be discussed as needed.
Once accommodations have been determined, the student can give permission for the L/AC to notify professors and relevant offices. After obtaining the student’s permission, the L/AC will email the Faculty Notification Letter (FNL), which outlines the student’s approved accommodations, to the student’s faculty, academic advisor, and department chair. The L/AC will then work with students and faculty as needed to implement the approved accommodations.
In order to become enrolled with our office we will need some documentation from a provider. This is so we get a deeper understanding of the impact of your condition and any recommended accommodations plans.
Please read through the following guidelines for what we look for in documentation: Guidelines. Your provider can write directly in the form and include their license number, or they can submit documentation on their own letterhead. Please upload all documents here: Document Upload.
