New! Student Accommodation Portal

SAS has migrated to a new system that gives students more access to and control over their accommodation requests. Students can use the new system to request accommodations and accommodation letters, schedule appointments and tests, sign information release consent forms, and more!

There are two ways to log in to the new system:

  1. If you have worked with SAS in the past (even if it was several years ago), you can use the standard login to access all of the new features.
  2. If you have never worked with SAS before, visit our New to SAS page for information on how to get started.

Eligibilities vs. Accommodations

It is important to note the difference between an “Eligibility” and an “Accommodation.” An Eligibility is something you are approved to receive based on documentation and conversations with SAS staff. Eligibilities stay the same until you meet with a Specialist to either add or remove them. An Accommodation is an Eligibility you request for a specific class for a specific term. For example, you might have extra time on a test as an Eligibility. You can request extra time on tests as an Accommodation for your math class but not your yoga class. Accommodations are requested on a class by class, term by term basis.

You can view all of your Eligibilities by clicking “My Eligibility” under the “My Accommodations” heading. If you have questions about the Eligibilities listed, contact SAS to schedule an appointment to talk with a Specialist.

The following guides explain how to perform a variety of tasks within the Student Accommodation Portal.

The student accommodation portal provides the option of receiving notifications via text messaging. You are the only one who has the ability to modify text messaging preferences. SAS staff cannot turn text messaging on for you. To change your texting preferences, click on “Update Preference” under the “SMS (Text Messaging)” menu header or click “SMS (Text Messaging)” under the “Home” menu header. Here you can enter your cell phone number and indicate your notification preferences. Your options may look different than the image below based on your eligibilities. 

You must log in to the new system using your Netpass username and password. If you do not yet have a username or password, contact our office to discuss next steps. 

You must have muti-factor authentication (MFA) set up before you can log in. If you have not yet done this, visit the IT guide on Multi-Factor Authentication to get started. 

If you have tried to log in using the wrong password multiple times you can get locked out of the system. Contact our office and we will be able to unlock your account.
