Syllabus Statement

Instructors should include a statement that assures proper notice of the availability of academic adjustments and encourages better communication between students and faculty about disability-related matters. 

Suggested Statement

This statement should be announced in class and included on course syllabi and websites (e.g. Canvas):

Students with disabilities who may need disability-related academic adjustments and services for this course are encouraged to see me privately as early in the term as possible. Students requiring disability-related academic adjustments and services must consult the Student Accessibility Services office (Carson Hall, Suite 125, 646-9900). Once SAS has authorized services, students must show the originally signed SAS Services and Consent Form and/or a letter on SAS letterhead to their professor. As a first step, if students have questions about whether they qualify to receive academic adjustments and services, they should contact the SAS office. All inquiries and discussions will remain confidential.
