Faculty Responsibilities

A Faculty Member is not obligated to provide reasonable accommodations without a signed Instructor Notification Form or E-Mail notification from the Disability Resources & Services office.

It is the primary responsibility of the student to initiate the discussion of the in-class accommodations needed; however, the outcome depends on the receptivity, flexibility, and understanding of the instructor.  Both faculty and  student may find it useful to consult with the DRS Department for advice and/or assistance.

Students may request accommodations at any time during the semester but they are not retroactive.
