How Do I Request Accomodations?
Step 1:The student must contact the Office of Disability Services and ask to speak with a Coordinator (848-445-6800 or email@example.com) to discuss accommodations.
Step 2: The student must provide his/her Coordinator with the appropriate documentation in support of his/her accommodation requests. Below is a list of the general disabilities categories, as well as the type of documentation which is required for each.
The Coordinator will work with the student in determining what type of documentation is required.
Step 3: The student's Coordinator will forward the documentation to the appropriate Disability Documentation Review Committee. Once the review is complete, the Coordinator will contact the student to inform him/her of any accommodations for which s/he was approved, and what must be done to implement those accommodations. If accommodations are denied, the Coordinator will explain why and what can be done to support those interests.
Step 4: Before or near the start of each term, the student will inform his/her Coordinator of the classes s/he is taking so that the Coordinator can produce notices for faculty which identifies specific accommodations, or raises awareness in regards to a condition which may require special consideration. The student is responsible for promptly providing the notices to their instructors.
Students must obtain faculty notices each term of enrollment and promptly provide them to their instructors at or near the beginning of the term. Instructors are not obligated to provide any accommodations which are not presented in the notice to faculty.
(STEPS 1-4 MAY TAKE UP TO 30 BUSINESS DAYS. BUSINESS DAYS DO NOT INCLUDE SATURDAYS, SUNDAYS, OR HOLIDAYS. STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO INITIATE THIS PROCESS WELL BEFORE THE START OF THE TERM, WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
