Faculty

Faculty, you can view your students requested accommodations known as the “Faculty Notification Letter” in your portal and you will also receive an email notification. Please contact the DSPS Department if you have any further questions. 

How to Request your Faculty Notification Letter (FNL) in AIM

  1. Using your single-sign-on credentials, login to My Portal open door to portal.

  2. Select Apps Catalog & select the DSPS AIM app AIM Logo.

  3. The first time you log in to AIM a prompt indicating “Action Required” appears. This action requires you to e-sign documents to proceed. You have already reviewed and signed these documents with your counselor during your initial intake. These forms now have to be signed electronically in order to use AIM. You will not have access to the rest of the site until this action is completed. Copies of these forms are located under the section titled “My E-Form Agreements” under My Accommodations located to the left.

  4. Review all of the Multiple Agreements under the Required Forms selection. At the bottom of all agreements, you will be required to electronically sign once for all agreements. Type in your name and then select Submit Form. This will complete your e-signature process.

  5. In the left panel, under “My Accommodations”, select “List Accommodations”.

  6. From “Select Accommodations for Your Classes”, review the Important Note, and proceed to “Step 1: Select Class(es)”.

  7. Select the corresponding checkbox for each of the courses that you are requesting accommodations for at this time.

  8. Click on “Step 2 - Continue to Customize Your Accommodations”.

  9. Review each of your individual courses and “Select Accommodation(s) for [course]” by checking the corresponding box next to the accommodations you are requesting – please ensure that you review and select accommodations for each course. You can modify your accommodation request at any time during the semester; however, accommodations are not retroactive. If you have any questions, please contact your DSPS Counselor. Note: Approved accommodations were determined at your “Intake Meeting” when you first registered with Disabled Students Programs and Services.

  10. Once you have completed selecting your accommodations for each class, click on “Submit Your Accommodation Requests” to complete your request. DSPS will email your Faculty Notification Letter to your instructors beginning the first day of the semester, and you will receive a copy of the email.

  11. We recommend that you follow up with each of your instructors to ensure they have received your accommodations following the first day of class.
