Accommodations Staff

How to Register

Please complete the Employee Request Form and submit your diagnostic documentation. A representative from Disability Services will contact you to inform you of your status and to set up an appointment with a Consumer Manager. 

Employees of the University who have self-disclosed a disability, registered with Disability Services and have provided the appropriate documentation, must meet with a Consumer Manager in order to receive accommodations and be referred for other services to which they may be entitled. Accommodations are made on a case by case basis and in keeping with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Consumer Managers are available to meet with faculty, staff and supervisors.

Employees who have a disability but do not anticipate a need for accommodations or services are also encouraged to register. Disability-related documentation is kept strictly confidential, and employees can present documentation without requesting services or accommodations. Should an unanticipated need for services or accommodations arise, Disability Services can begin to assist the employee without delay if their disability-related documentation is already on file.

Diagnostic documentation can be mailed, faxed or scanned to the following addresses: (US Mail) Disability Services, Attn: Joanne Provost, 161 Whitmore Administration Building, 181 Presidents Drive, Amherst, MA 01003-9313, (Email) notify@admin.umass.edu or (FAX) 413-577-0122.
