Connecting with the Office of Disability Support Services (DSS) in order to request reasonable accommodation has several steps.

  1. Log in to SAM and complete a new student application.
  2. Submit documentation of your diagnosis or condition. You can upload documentation when you submit your application. Or, you may fax it to 302-831-3261, email it to, or if you are on campus you may bring your documentation to the office in person.
  3. Schedule your registration appointment by calling 302-831-4643 or stopping by the office (Suite 130 Alison Hall).

During your registration appointment you will have the opportunity to request any accommodations that were not listed on the application. Students will be eligible for the accommodations that they are approved for as long as they are a student at the University of Delaware.

Please do not hesitate to contact the office by phone at 302-831-4643 or email at if you would like to discuss your individual situation, and/or have any questions or concerns about the process.
