Course Accessiblity Letters (CALs) notify faculty of your approved DSS accommodations. You send your CALs to each of your professors at the beginning of each semester. After you send your CAL, your professor will recieve it in an email to their CSUF faculty email account.

- Click the “Request” button for the class you would like to send your Course Accessibility Letters.
- On the Request Accommodations page, you can choose to deselect any accommodations you do not want to use for that specifc class. **Repeat these steps for all of the classes you would like to activate your accommodations for.**
- Once you have sent your requests, your letter status will change to “Pending” and will change to “Confrmed” once your professor has viewed the letter.
What is in the CAL? Does it disclose my disability?
The CAL lists your approved DSS accommodations and informs your instrcutor of your registration with DSS. It does not disclose your disability or why you registered with DSS.
Do I need to send CALs?
Yes. You need to send a CAL for each course you want to use your approved DSS accommodations in. Professors do not know if you have approved DSS accommodations if you do not send your CALs. Professors are also not able provide support for your approved DSS accommodations if you do not send your CALs.
Approved DSS accommodations cannot be applied retroactively, so it is important to send your CALs at the beginning of each semester.
