The Access and Accommodations Center (AACE) is designated to determine disability related academic accommodations. A student’s access to approved accommodations is a right under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act (2008) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Accommodations provide students with an equal opportunity to an education. An instructor may not deny an approved accommodation. For more information, please see Responding to a Student’s Disability Reference Guide and Faculty Do’s and Don’ts.
Sample Student Accommodation Syllabus Statement
The following should be placed in the syllabus: Students who wish to request accommodations for a disability may do so by registering with AACE. Students may only be accommodated upon issuance by AACE of a signed Letter of Accommodation and are responsible for providing a copy of that letter to instructors of all classes in which an accommodation is sought.
