It is the responsibility of the student to self-identify as having a qualifying disability and to seek and obtain specific accommodations, aids and services. Fairmont State University cannot assume responsibility for providing accommodations or services to students who have not identified themselves to the Office of Accessibility Services as having a qualifying disability.
To register for accessibility services, students must schedule an appointment with the Office of Accessibility Services and provide staff with documentation of their disabilities (statement/documentation of diagnosis and the problem(s) created by the disability). Through individual consultation, accommodation, and service, the Accessibility Services staff will:
The established method for informing faculty members and other identified institutional personnel of students’ rights to specific identified accommodation(s), and to determine the reasonableness of identified accommodations is as follows:
If the student encounters any problems related to their accommodations and/or disability, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the Office of Accessibility Services promptly to initiate the resolution of problems. Faculty and staff are not responsible for the provision of accommodations that have not been requested in a timely manner (e.g., five (5) business days for testing accommodations).
If you have questions regarding the registration process, please call 304-333-3661.
In order to qualify for services offered by the Office of Accessibility Services, a student should provide official documentation to a member of our staff at the initial meeting. The student’s disability should be diagnosed by a qualified professional and include a clear statement of the student’s disability. It is preferable that the documentation includes the student’s needs, the impact the disability has on the student, and recommendations for reasonable accommodations. Appropriate documentation is one of the following:
Provisional accommodations may be granted for no longer than one semester without complete documentation, so long as the evidence presented supports the presence of a disability. Students are required to obtain sufficient documentation for continuation of services beyond one semester.
