Student Access Services will be temporarily closed on Wednesday, November 27. If you need assistance on that day, please email  studentaccess@vanderbilt.edu  and someone will respond. Student Access Services will be closed November 28 and 29 in accordance to the University calendar.

Student Access has made many changes over the summer. Please read below to find out about the updates!

Commodore Access Portal 👉

The Commodore Access Portal will be the ultimate mode of communication around accommodations for students, faculty, and the Student Access team. 
Students will use the Commodore Access Portal to connect with the office, request accommodations, and schedule exams. Through this portal, the Student Access team is then able to view requests, schedule exams, and collaborate with students and faculty to ensure students are receiving access. Faculty will also use the Commodore Access Portal to view Accommodation Letters and Provide proctoring information to our testing coordinator. 


If you are an incoming student, a member of the SAS team will meet with you to discuss your accommodations and show you the Commodore Access Portal.

If you are a faculty member, you may request a training session by emailing Student Access. We are happy to provide 1:1 demonstrations and/or provide quick departmental overviews.
