PREPARING FOR ORIENTATION
✓ Mathematics Assessment: Visit http://assess.math.sunysb.edu/
In order to enroll in a mathematics course, or a course with a mathematics prerequisite, all new students must demonstrate the appropriate level of mathematics proficiency. This is done by taking a proctored mathematics exam or its equivalent (appropriate transfer credit, AP scores, etc.) New students must take the proctored exam prior to their scheduled orientation.
If you require an accommodation for the assessment you will need to take it at DSS.
Appointments can be made by contacting us at 631-632-6748.
In order to provide accommodations DSS must receive and review your Documentation.
✓ Register for Classes at Orientation
Be sure to schedule time between classes if you will need extended time for exams
✓ Did you meet with your DSS counselor?
EVERY SEMESTER come in to DSS to meet with a counselor as soon as you have been to all your classes and know your professors’ names. Bring your syllabus for each class. You will be filling out an accommodation request form to generate a letter to each professor that explains your accommodations.
✓ Did you set up appointments to speak individually with each of your professors to discuss your accommodations?
Remember, if you have testing accommodations; discuss how your professors want you to alert them to send each test to DSS.
