What do I do if I have a disability covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act?

A student who believes that reasonable accommodations with respect to course work or other academic requirements may be appropriate in consideration of a disability must:

  1. provide the required verification of the disability to the Disability Resource Center,
  2. meet with Center personnel to determine appropriate accommodations and
  3. inform the faculty in charge of the academic activity of the need for accommodation.

Students are encouraged to inform the faculty of their requests in a timely enough manner for accommodations to be appropriately considered and reviewed by the university. If contacted by the faculty member, the staff of the Disability Resource Center will provide advice about accommodations that may be indicated in the particular case. Students who make requests for reasonable accommodations are expected to follow the policies and procedures of the Disability Resource Center in this process, including but not limited to the Student Handbook.
