Priority Registration

Students with disabilities  who have been deemed qualified for this accommodation and who are actively using DSS services  can register on first day of undergraduate pre-registration. Priority registration is an accommodation approved when student have mobility, medical or academic needs that impact their class schedule, such as timing of medication, food or treatments, difficulty walking long distances quickly, different routes due to wheelchair use, excessive fatigue or the need for extended time on tests).  It also allows DSS to coordinate services more efficiently, such as the advance time needed to hire sign language interpreters or relocate classrooms or accessible furniture.

Students eligible for priority registration should notify DSS (in person, by phone 205-665-6250, or by email – as soon as they have met with their academic advisor.  This request must be made each term that they wish to use the priority registration accommodation. Use of priority regsitration during one term does not automatically activate it for the next term without a request.  DSS will then authorize the earlier registration date.  Please note that this accommodation does not override a cashier, health or other registration hold on the student account.
