To schedule a meeting: 
To schedule a meeting with a DASS staff member, please go to the student DASS Link log-in page and pick the appropriate staff person, most likely your DASS Coordinator. If you don't know who your Coordinator is, check DASS Link>>Accommodations>>Accommodation Letters to view a letter with your Coordinator's signature. If you haven't been approved for accommodations before, please email to discuss the best time to schedule an appointment with a staff person.


Submitting disability-related medical or other supporting documentation:
We strongly encourage you to submit any medical or other supporting documentation electronically via DASS Link rather than by mail. If you're a student requesting accommodations for the first time at SMU, you can attach electronic copies of your documents when you fill out the Accommodation Request Form. If you've already requested or received accommodations through DASS, follow the DASS Link instructions to upload new documents.


For fax or mailing purposes other than submitting disability-related documentation:
