Faculty Guidelines

 
Syllabi statement all teaching Faculty should use:

Below is a sample statement that can be placed in your syllabus to notify students with Disabilities that they must register in the Disability Services (DS) office if they are to receive any special accommodations.  Please note that the deadline date to register with DS is always the same date as the last day of add/drop of each term.  This change should enable you to keep the same statement each term/year you teach without having to chance the dates.

The University will make reasonable accommodations for persons with documented disabilities.  Students need to register with Disability Services (DS) every semester they are enrolled for classes.  DS is located in Counseling & Disability Services, 2157 UC.  To be assured of having services when they are needed, students should register no later than the end of the add/drop deadline of each term.
