Accessibility Services Listening Sessions

After a month of unexpected technical challenges, we are pleased to announce that the AS Portal is now live for students. 
Summary of changes for Students:

  • The previous accommodation management portal, Accommodate, is no longer being used.
  • The Determination of Accommodations letter will no longer need to be sent to faculty.
  • The Semester Request process will no longer be needed.
  • The Accommodation Notification Form (available in the AS Portal) will be used to BOTH notify faculty and your Accommodation Coordinators (Accessible Furniture, Course Notes, Interpreting, Real Time Captioning, Accessible Testing) that you plan to use your accommodations in a specific course.

Summary of Changes for Faculty:

  • Students will now notify you via their AS Portal, and you will receive email notifications listing student accommodations.
    • You will begin receiving submitted notifications on August 10th. Notifications that are submitted after August 10th will be sent out the following day. 

Summary of things that are the same:

  • Accessible Testing will still be managed primarily through the Accessible Testing Request form (for students) and the Testing Conditions form (for Faculty). 
  • Accessible Media will still be requested through the Accessible Media Textbook and Course Materials Request forms. 
  • Next steps regarding Course Notes, Accessible Furniture, Interpreting, and Real Time Captioning will continue to be communicated to students and faculty via email from the respective Accommodation Coordinator emails. 
  • Questions regarding Assistive Technology, or available equipment, should be sent to atstudent@csueastbay.edu


Over the 21/22 Academic Year, we held 13 listening sessions to gather insight and suggestions from faculty, students, and campus partners, as we began development of the AS Portal. This feedback was vital to ensuring that we build something that students and faculty can use easily and effectively.This first iteration of the AS Portal targets the primary function of notifying faculty and Accommodation Coordinators. We anticipate adding new features and functions as staff, student, and faculty feedback is gathered.


With this in mind, we invite you to our Listening Sessions. Dates and registration links are below. 

 In addition to listening sessions you can submit feedback through our online survey, or by emailing to set up a one on one conversation (rochelle.thompson@csueastbay.edu).


We look forward to future conversations.
