Services for Students with Disabilities

The University seeks to provide reasonable accommodation for students with disabilities that may negatively affect their college education. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the Dean or Program Director and Academic Support to submit a formal request for accommodation.  The student must provide official documentation of the disability that is to be accommodated.  The Dean will make a determination of the appropriate accommodations and will provide this determination to the student in writing.  It is the student’s responsibility to provide faculty with a copy of this letter during the first week of a new class and prior to any assessments listed in the syllabus. If a faculty member does not have a copy of the determination letter, he/she is not required to accommodate the student’s disability.
