Academic Accommodations for Students with Disabilities Policy outlines the requirements for providing approved accommodations to students. Instructors should include a statement in their syllabi informing students how to request accommodations through DSP. Sample statements can be accessed below.
Academic modifications due to temporary illness or injury can also be approved by DSP, or instructors may choose to make minor arrangements with students without the involvement of DSP. For example: if a student is temporarily ill or injured and needs to have an extension on a test or a paper, the instructor and student are encouraged to negotiate the terms of the extension. These arrangements should be noted in the Advising Toolkit – Comment Section – in PioneerWeb.
DSP is available for individual faculty/staff consultations and department informational sessions.
