How to request an accomodation

Students who are requesting any accommodations on the basis of disability should see their professor within the first three weeks of the semester. Please schedule this office appointment by e-mail or during office hours. To maintain the confidentiality of your request, please do not approach the professor before or after class to discuss your accommodation needs. Please do not discuss your accommodation needs with teaching assistants.

Your success is important to us. During the office appointment, we can work together to develop strategies for adapting assignments to meet both your needs and the requirements of the course. The McBurney Disability Resource Center (263-2741) provides resources for students with disabilities. You will need to provide documentation of disability to them in order to receive official university services and accommodations. In addition, the professor will expect to receive a copy of your McBurney visa, and a letter of flexibility if one was granted. 

We look forward to working with you to meet your learning goals.
