Syllabi Statements

Academic Accommodations and Alternate Media Syllabi Statements

DSPS recommends that instructors include the following two statements on their syllabi. The same statements are included in each semester's course schedule, the college catalog, and (beginning next academic year) on the student's printed class schedule as a footer.


Academic Accommodations: Students have the right to request reasonable modifications to college requirements, services, facilities or programs if their documented disability imposes an educational limitation or impedes access to such requirements, services, facilities or programs. A student with a disability who requests a modification, accommodation, or adjustment is responsible for identifying himself/herself to the instructor and, if desired, to the Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS) office. Students who consult or request assistance from DSPS regarding specific modifications, accommodations, adjustments or use of auxiliary aids will be required to meet timelines and procedural requirements established by the DSPS office.


Alternate Media: Students with a print disability--a visual limitation or reading difficulty that limits access to traditional print materials--may request printed materials in alternate media. Examples of alternate media formats include electronic format (e.g., PDF or Word file), Braille, tactile graphics, audio format, and large print. Students can make alternate media requests through the Office of Disabled Student Programs and Services.
