Initiating Services

Once students are registered with Accessible Education Services (AES), they receive a reminder email at the beginning of each semester directing them to the AES portal to request accommodations for the current semester.  The process is fast and easy.

Students are not required to meet with AES staff each semester to request accommodations.  The request process is completed online, with students and professors notified by email when accommodations are approved. 

However, if students need any support or assistance, please contact us!  We are here to assist with academic success!  Email us at aes@eckerd.edu or call us at 727-864-8248 to schedule an appointment.  "We're here for you!"

The instructions for requesting accommodations may be found here.  Please keep in mind the following DSS guidelines in securing academic accommodations:

  • Accommodations cannot be made retroactively.
  • AES requires three (3) business days to review and approve requests.  If students need accommodations within three (3) business days of a request, they must call Counseling & Accessible Education Services at 727-864-8248.
  • Students are notified via email when requests have been reviewed and approved.  Students should check their Eckerd email account frequently and ensure ample space to receive messages.
  • Students are required to re-request accommodations each semester.
  • To revise to an existing accommodation request, email aes@eckerd.edu or call 727-864-8248.
  • Accommodations for tests/exams to be taken in Counseling Services may also be made online after semester course accommodations are approved. Directions for requesting test/exam accommodations are found here.

Our office hours are 8:30am to 5pm, Monday through Friday, and our phone number is 727-864-8248.  Please call us if you have any questions!

Accessible Education Services

Eckerd College is devoted to providing support services that enable students with disabilities to participate in, and benefit from, all College programs and activities. Eckerd College has placed Accessible Education Services (formerly Disability Support Services) in Counseling Services to ensure that otherwise-qualified individuals with disabilities are protected from discrimination in the educational setting.
