Checklist for New Students

Congratulations on your admission to Ithaca College!  If you would like to register with our office as a student with a disability, please refer to the following checklist:

  1. Complete and submit the online Disability Identification Form.

  2. Provide documentation of your disability to the SAS office as soon as possible. You can send these records by mail, fax or email. To learn more about documentation, please refer to Documentation Guidelines.

    • *Please keep in mind that each person's situation is unique, and documentation requirements may vary by situation. 

    • No student should delay registering with our office out of concern for not having appropriate paperwork. 

    • Documentation may be sent at any time once your form is submitted, but should be received by Student Accessibility Services prior to your orientation. 

  3. If you are interested in applying for a Housing Accommodation, please see SPECIAL HOUSING ACCOMMODATION REQUEST. 

  4. If you are requesting a Modification to the Meal plan, you should first explore the dietary options at Dining Services. Contact Dining Services at: and ask them about how you could be accommodated in the dining hall.  If after discussing options with Dining services, you believe you still can not be accommodated safely based on your disability, see Process for requesting DIETARY ACCOMMODATIONS 

  5. Please call our office at (607) 274-1005 to set up an appointment with a Student Accessibility Specialist.  You may want to schedule a meeting during the time that you will be here for Summer Orientation.  During this meeting, we will begin to develop your accommodation plan.  We will meet again once classes are in session to review procedures and address any questions or concerns.

If you are coming to campus and require assistance with orientation, please refer to the website:
