Accommodation Responsibilities

The process of providing and receiving accommodations is a shared responsibility between the student, instructor, and Campus Accessibility Services.  Please see Rights and Responsibilities of Students with Disabilities for details.  Campus Accessibility Services works collaboratively with the student and faculty in this shared responsibility. The level of involvement faculty will have in the accommodation process will vary depending upon the type of accommodation provided, the setting for the accommodation, and the functional limitation of the student’s disability.
