Important information regarding LACDS changes in light of COVID-19.

– Already Picked-Up Your Accommodation Letters this semester and have your accommodations in place for your classes? Now it’s time to reach out to your professors to determine how your accommodations will be handled in the online learning platform.  Contact your professors soon!

– Still Need To Get Your Accommodation Letters? Email lacds@nullwfu.edu to discuss next steps. If you submitted documentation to our office but do not yet have your letters, please email or call to set up a virtual appointment.

– Need to submit documentation? Due to current campus regulations, mail and fax services will not be checked on a regular basis at this time. Please submit all documentation electronically to lacds@nullwfu.edu in a single .pdf document. Email is the preferred manner for contact at the current time and all appointments will be held in a virtual/online environment until further notice.

Test Proctoring
– Tests will not be proctored by the LAC-DS. Please confirm with your professors to ensure testing occurs in accordance with your accommodation.

In concert with the mission of the Division of Campus Life, Disability Services within the Learning Assistance Center (LAC-DS) exists to enable students with disabilities to experience equal access to the academic, social, and recreational activities and programs at Wake Forest University. To achieve the goal of “equal access,” the LAC-DS staff works with students, faculty, and staff to implement services and accommodations that are in accordance with both state and federal laws and our own commitment to this goal.

The size of Wake Forest University enables the LAC-DS staff to work in an individual manner with students who choose to disclose disabilities.

Planning a program? Make sure to include an accommodations statement on all advertising materials: “If you need accommodations for this event, please contact (name of event contact) at (email or phone) five business days in advance.”
