Syllabus Statement

Please include the following statement on each course syllabus and read it aloud during the first week of each term:

Accessibility Services contributes to the development of equitable higher education experiences for all students who have disabilities.  Accessibility services are available to any student, full or part-time, who has a need because of a documented disability.  It is the student’s responsibility to register for accessibility services and to provide any necessary documentation to verify the need for accommodations. Faculty will be provided with a copy of the students academic accommodation letter each semester in order to receive accommodations. Faculty, students, and the Office of Accessibility Services must cooperate to ensure the most effective provision of accommodations for each class.

It is the student’s responsibility to inform faculty each semester of any necessary accommodations needed in order to receive accommodations throughout the semester.  Faculty are under no obligation to provide academic accommodations until the student discusses the accommodation letter with them. When a student has asked for disability related accommodations without an accommodation letter, a referral is appropriate and necessary.  Faculty or students who encounter problems regarding accommodations are asked to notify the Office of Accessibility Services immediately.
