It is essential that students with disabilities self-identify and submit written
requests for accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids within a timely
manner. Whenever possible, this request should be made prior to the start of the
semester. Students requesting accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary
aids must follow these procedures:
Must have a documented disability and must self-identify to the DRC.
The student may be asked to provide appropriate third-party documentation which
helps to establish the presence of a disability. Should documentation not be
available, it is the student’s responsibility to obtain this at his/her own
expense and provide it to the DRC.
Schedule/participate in an intake meeting, at which time the student will be asked
about the disability, and the impact or barrier(s) it has on their educational
The DRC and the student will discuss the request for reasonable accommodations,
academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids.
The DRC will review the intake notes and third-party documentation to determine the
appropriateness of the accommodations requested.
The DRC will inform the student of the resulting decision.
For approved accommodations, academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids, the DRC will
provide a letter of accommodation for each of the student’s instructors. It is the
student’s responsibility to deliver the letter to the instructor(s) and discuss with
them the implementation of accommodations.
Requests for accommodations, academic adjustments, and/ or auxiliary aids must be
made to the DRC EACH semester of enrollment.
The DRC will update the accommodation letter and again provide a copy for each of
the student’s instructors.
Should the student disagree with the decision of the DRC, the student must, within ten
(10) working days, submit a written appeal to the Dean of Student Aﬀairs, as outlined
in the Grievance Procedure.
Reasonable accommodations are determined on an individual basis. No student has a right
to any particular accommodation except those needed to properly address the disability
and its barriers.
Examples of such accommodations and auxiliary aids may include, but are not limited to:
Textbooks in an alternate format
Use of tape recorder or other auditory recording device in class
Extended time for exams and quizzes
Reduced-distraction testing environment with proctor for exams
