ACCOMMODATION NOTICES

WHAT IS AN ACCOMMODATION NOTICE?

The Accommodation Notice is a document that the student and office of disability services creates to list all of the approved accommodations. The Accommodation Notice is developed once the student has completed the initial accommodation process.


IMPORTANT ACCOMMODATION NOTICE DETAILS:

Accommodation Notices are renewed each semester and may change depending on the classes for which the student is enrolled each semester. Accommodation Notices are not issued automatically. Each semester, students must request to continue accommodations.


Accommodation Notices are only issued through the office of disability services when the student has submitted the request for accommodations to the office.


Accommodation Notices are the documents that notifies instructors of the student’s approved accommodations and accommodations start at that point of notification.


Accommodation Notices are emailed to instructors from the Office of Disability Services after the student and coordinator of disability services have met and agreed upon accommodations.
