Syllabus Statement (current fall 2020)

All Faculty must Include a “Disability Statement” on their syllabi.

Statement:  “Students in need of accommodation due to a disability should contact the Access and Accommodation Office to complete the verification process to become approved for services.   In order to receive accommodations, each term, students will request accommodation and faculty notification forms through the Access Office online system Accommodate. Students are strongly encouraged to schedule a meeting with each professor in a timely manner to discuss arrangements. Accommodations are not retroactive in nature. Note – Disability accommodations or status are not reflected on academic transcripts.  Students with a history of a disability, perceived as having a disability or with a current disability who do not wish to use academic accommodations are also strongly encouraged to complete the verification process with the Access Office.

Students must request accommodations in a timely manner to receive accommodations in a timely manner.  “
