Office of Accessibility

Faculty and staff have the right to:

  • Request verification of a student's eligibility for any requested accommodations. Verification is in the form of an accommodation letter, written by a Disability Specialist from the Office of Accessibility and delivered to you via email. The Office of Accessibility is the only office designated to review disability documentation and determine eligibility for appropriate accommodations. If this disability documentation (rather than the accommodation letter) is presented directly to you, please refer the student to the Office of Accessibility. Faculty and staff should not review the primary documentation.
  • Expect the student to initiate accommodation requests.
  • Expect the student and the Office of Accessibility to work with you to coordinate the provision of the appropriate accommodations.
