Requesting Accommodation Notifications to Faculty

Each semester, you must request email accommodation notifications for your instructors through AEO’s online portal if you wish to access your accommodations in your classes. 

The portal is now open for you to submit your requests! It may take up to 24 hours after you enroll in my.harvard for your courses to appear in AEO’s online portal. If your courses do not appear when you log into the AIM portal, please contact us.

Please follow the steps outlined below to send out your accommodation notifications:

  1. To get started, log into the AEO online portal using your Harvard Key.

  2. Once logged in, you will see your classes listed under the heading “Select Accommodations for Your Class”

  3. In the section labeled “Step 1: Select Class(es),” check the boxes for the classes that you would like to send accommodation notifications to your instructors.

  4. Click “Step 2: Continue to Customize Accommodations.”

  5. On this page, select which accommodations you want to appear in your notifications for each class. Accommodations are listed in broad categories. If you have been approved for any testing/exam accommodations (such as extended time), these will be indicated in your notifications by selecting the  “Alternative Testing” category.

  6. Select “Submit Your Accommodation Requests.” After you submit, AEO will review your requests for accuracy and prompt the system to email out your requested notifications to your course instructors. 

  7. The notifications are emailed to the primary instructor of each course. You will also receive a copy of each notification email directly to your inbox. You will need to forward the email to any additional course instructors, such as TFs, who are not automatically notified.

  8. We advise that you meet with your instructors to discuss your access needs and accommodations for each course. AEO staff are available to support these conversations - reach out if you need help!

Notification emails will not be sent to your teaching staff unless you put through a request via the online portal. If you need to access accommodations, please be sure to put in a request!

Additionally, an accommodation request from this term is required in order to ensure the implementation of your accommodations for the current semester. Please do not forward accommodation notification emails from previous semester requests, as these do not indicate your most up-to-date eligibility for accommodations.

It may take up to 24 hours after you enroll in my.harvard for your courses to appear in AEO’s online portal. If your courses do not appear when you log into the AIM portal, please contact us. You can call us at (617) 635-8707 or email aeo@fas.harvard.edu
