All requests for accommodation must be done through the Office of Student Accessibility; do not offer an accommodation unless the student has provided you with an official “Accommodation Letter” from this office.
At the beginning of each semester, faculty should receive a letter from the office for each student receiving accommodations. This letter will verify that the student has a documented disability and explain the accommodations he or she will need in order to succeed in class.
The OSA is prepared to assist professors by providing alternate testing rooms or proctors when necessary. It is between the student and the professor, however, to decide how such services are rendered and to contact this office if assistance is required. The office also assumes responsibility for recruiting and hiring class note takers and alternative texts. See Procedures for Common Academic Accommodations for a general outline of how the office accommodations disabilities in the classroom.
