What if a student in my class needs accommodation?
Should a student in your class require an academic accommodation (e.g. extended testing time, note-taking assistance, etc.), a notification letter will be sent to you from the DS office which identifies the student and the accommodations requested. If a student approaches you requesting accommodations based on a disability but does not have a notification letter from this department, please refer the student to DS.
Please Use a Syllabus Statement
