Accommodations in place for students at College of Western Idaho (CWI) through Student Disability Services must be renewed each semester.

Steps to Renew

You may review, renew, or request changes to your accommodations using the Accessibility Information Management Systems (AIM) system.

  • Log in using your CWI username and password.
  • To ensure you do not miss important communications from AIM, we encourage you to add post.accessiblelearning.com to your safe sender list and check your junk folder regularly.

    • Select Submit Your Accommodation Requests to complete your request to Student Disability Services. 
  • 4. Receive Letter of Accommodations

    Student Disability Services will review your request and, upon approval, a Letter of Accommodations (LOA) will be emailed to your and your instructor(s). This letter may also be referred to in the AIM system as a Faculty Notification Letter. 

    • Be sure to review information in this letter carefully, in addition to information contained in any accompanying links. 
    • Once you have reviewed your LOA, discuss your accommodations with your instructor(s).
    • Contact your Student Disability Services Coordinator to ask questions or discuss concerns or modifications to your approved accommodations list. 

    Modifying YOUR LOA

    • To request modification of your LOA for a class, select Modify Request next to the course.
    • If you modify your accommodation request after the LOA has already been emailed, you will not be able to generate the revised letter without approval from Student Disability Services. 
      • Approvals typically take one (1) business day to process.
      • Student Disability Services will contact you with any questions. 
      • Check your student email to check the status of your modified LOA.

    Saving and Printing Your LOA

    • You may download a PDF copy of your LOA by selecting the class from the dropdown menu and clicking Generate PDF.
    • Saving and/or printing your LOA is optional as necessary parties will receive the letter via email.
