Peer Advisor Drop-in Sessions are designed for students registered with Accessibility Services to chat with their peers and learn more about using accommodations.
Discussion topics may include:
- downloading your Letter of Accommodation
- speaking to professors
- registering for Accommodated Testing Services
- planning your semester
- setting goals
Join us whether you have a brief question or several questions. Drop in when you can and stay for as long as you’d like during the session.
These sessions are available to all students, at any level, who are registered with Accessibility Services. They are also available to students who are thinking about registering with Accessibility Services.
How The Program Works
These are group sessions facilitated by peer advisors. Peer advisors can’t advise you on your specific accommodations or inform you of possible outcomes of your requests. For these inquiries, please connect with your accessibility advisor.
Peer Advisor Drop-in Sessions are available from September 20, 2021 – April 15, 2022 for fall/winter at the following times:
- Mondays from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.
- Tuesdays from 12 – 2 p.m.
- Wednesdays from 12 – 2 p.m.
- Thursdays from 12 – 2 p.m.
- Fridays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Format: You will have the opportunity to ask questions about downloading your letter of accommodation, registering for tests or talking about your academic goals. Questions will be answered in a first come, first served format. Drop in when you can and stay for as long as you like – you don’t need to stay for the full session. Each time slot is led by peer advisors from Accessibility Services.
Participation: Being on camera, using your mic, or participating in the chat are all optional. We welcome you to participate in a way that works for you. You are welcome to ask your own questions or simply observe these sessions to learn from ongoing discussions.
Materials: You are not required to bring any materials to these sessions, but we encourage you to come prepared with questions. Recordings of these sessions will not be provided to encourage the participation of all student attendees.
Platform access information: This session will be delivered using MS Teams. Information on how to access live captions, and all other accessibility information for MS Teams, can be found on this MS Teams accessibility page.
