SAAS Information

Online access to accommodations and services

Students registered with the Disability Resources and Educational Services office have access to the Web-based Student Access and Accommodation System (SAAS). SAAS is used to manage the alternative testing process and to request academic accommodations, support services, and alternative testing. Log in to SAAS here

DRES and NCOD students with the approved accommodation of “Shared Notes”  use the Student Access and Accommodation System (SAAS) to recruit and manage their notetakers online. Please visit our Accommodation Procedures site, under “Shared Notes” for more information.

If you have problems accessing SAAS, the issue may be your Web browser. Make sure you’re using the latest version of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Google Chrome.
