Donate to UNF THRIVE for Students with Autism
This April is Autism Awareness Month, and THRIVE is asking for your support so we may continue to help students with autism.
Your donation will allow us to provide support for our students, such as trained peer mentors and our living-learning community, and develop connections with community partners so our students can interact with potential employers. To donate to THRIVE or learn more about how your donation can help, visit the website.
SAS Accommodations During Spring 2021 Term
If you need assistance with accommodation concerns,
please email SAScenter@unf.edu. SAS encourages the use of video conferencing for meetings with our staff.
In-person meetings with SAS staff will be by appointment only. Individual staff
members are available at their university email address during this time. SAS staff contacts are listed on the SAS web site. We ask that students continue to
monitor alerts and the coronavirus website
for updates, resources and FAQs.
All appointments with SAS (other then exam scheduling)
should be made by emailing the main SAS email account or a specific SAS staff
member (see 'Meet the Staff' page).
The University recognizes that there are some
individuals who are at higher risk from complications arising from coronavirus.
Students can self-identify as high-risk and/or request modifications or
accommodations by submitting a COVID19: High Risk - Request for ReasonableModification or Accommodation Form.
In general, only on-campus exams will be administered at SAS. Online exams should be taken at another location and coordinated
directly with your instructor to receive accommodations unless special
arrangement has been made with SAS. Please do not make testing appointments
for online exams through Clockwork. Please email Emily Peterson at SASexams@unf.edu with any questions you have or special considerations needed. Testing rooms
will only be available for students who have an appointment to take an exam and
nothing else (i.e. studying). For sanitary reasons, students will be responsible
to bring all supplies needed for exams (pencils, calculators, etc.). SAS will not have these available.
Students will need to make an appointment to take an exam
in SAS at least 5 business days in advance through Clockwork in myWings. If
this deadline is missed, students can email the SAS Exams email account to
schedule a late exam appointment. We will no longer be using paper late sign-up
forms; hence students should not come to SAS to schedule any exam
If you are experiencing symptoms of illness and are
scheduled to take an exam at SAS please contact your Instructor for
permission to reschedule to take your exam at a different time and have your
instructor confirm this with the SAS’s Testing Coordinator.
If a Professor is unable to provide exam accommodations for a SAS registered student in a remote course using Zoom please reach out to Emily Peterson
at the SAS Exams email account for assistance. Faculty who need assistance with
extending time on exams in Canvas should contact CIRT(email@example.com).
Deaf/Hard of Hearing Students:
ASL/Interpreting Services: If you require ASL interpreting services for on campus or virtual class meetings please fill out the Interpreter Request Form. General SAS interpreting questions can be sent to DHHStudentServices@unf.edu.
Prerecorded Lecture Video/Audio: Professors are encouraged to make their prerecorded lecture video or audio recordings accessible by either auto-captioning through Canvas Studio or requesting captioning assistance through CIRT(cirtlab email).
Semester Accommodations Renewal:
Students will continue to request accommodations through Clockwork via MyWings -> Student Tools -> Clockwork.
How to complete registration with SAS:
At this time, there will not be in-person SAS registration appointments. As an alternative, our department will be conducting remote registrations. Please continue to submit your disability documentation via Clockwork (MyWings -> Student Tools -> Clockwork -> Online Intake). Guidelines for documentation and forms are on the Student Accessibility Services website. Once a student has submitted their documentation and completed their Online Intake, they will receive an email inviting them to make a virtual registration appointment. India Hamilton will be the point of contact for all registration questions and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please contact email@example.com if you require course texts in an alternate format or require Assistive Technology resources. Information on how to utilize common assistive software is available upon request.
Student Accessibility Services (SAS) promotes and facilitates partnerships among UNF students with disabilities and the UNF community.
