Syllabus Statement

We encourage you to inform students of their rights, and provide information on how to contact Accessibility Resources to request reasonable accommodations. The simplest way to do so is to include a statement on the course syllabus. Please feel free to use the following sample statement on your syllabus:

Reasonable accommodations for equal access to this course because of disability should be requested through:

Accessibility Resources
60 Capen Hall

Refer a Student to Accessibility Resources

If you know a student who may benefit from accommodations, you may refer them to Accessibility Resources on a confidential basis. Please note that students with disabilities are entitled to privacy with respect to their disabilities. We encourage you to read the Reasonable Accommodation Policy.

Understand How Students Receive Accommodations

  • Step 1. The student should request an accommodation from Accessibility Resources
  • Step 2. If the reasonable accommodation is approved, Accessibility Resources will issue an Accommodation Memo
  • Step 3. The student is responsible for sharing this Accommodation Memo with you, and consulting with you about the accommodations that need to be made
