Supplemental Requests

The supplemental request process allows students the opportunity to provide new and different information for consideration when there is a significant change in their medical or psychological conditions. Students are not able to use this process to resubmit the same information for consideration of previously denied accommodations.

Adhering to the deadlines, students must submit the request in writing and provide a detailed explanation for the request.

Supplemental requests are reviewed in the order received and may not be considered until the following semester if a student has previously been through the review process for a given semester or is submitting after the deadline. 

To submit a supplemental request:

1. Email disabilityservices@miami.edu to request a supplemental review.

2. Upload new documentation into Accommodate.

3. Upload a written statement including:

  • What additional accommodations are you requesting?
  • Describe the changes in your condition for requesting additional accommodations.

Contact our office at disabilityservices@miami.edu if you have any questions.
