Students with disabilities who request accommodations will provide each professor with a letter from Disabilities Resources. This letter identifies the individual as a student with a disability and lists the accommodations that are approved for that student. Students with disabilities and their professors are expected to have a private, confidential conversation about how these accommodations will be arranged. Any questions or difficulties with arranging accommodations should be addressed to Disabilities Resources.
Professors are strongly encouraged to provide classroom accommodations only to students who have identified themselves through the process outlined above. Oftentimes questions will arise regarding the accommodations of students who have not registered with Disabilities Resources, including legal entanglements and conflicting student expectations. If you are ever uncertain about your obligations in this process, please do not hesitate to contact Disabilities Resources.
Accommodations that constitute a fundamental alteration of the curriculum are not appropriate and will not be approved by Disabilities Resources. Additionally, accommodations are NEVER provided retroactively; requests for accommodations after a test is administered or an assignment is due WILL NOT be provided.
