Concerns About Accommodation Decisions

The Disability Access Center (DAC) is responsible for determining a student’s need for accommodation. If the DAC determines a student is eligible for accommodations, the DAC is responsible for coordinating the accommodations with the student and the instructor and third-party service providers. 

 Students: Request an Accommodation

RESOLVING STUDENT CONCERNS

If a student disagrees with a determination that they are not a qualified student with a disability, or if a student is approved for an accommodation but believes that it is not being provided as agreed, the student is encouraged to contact the DAC to attempt to resolve the issue informally.

The student also may choose to file a formal concern instead of contacting the DAC or if attempts to resolve the issue do not satisfy the student. Submitting a Concern Form will not interrupt any academic accommodations or services that have been put into place.

Submit a Concern Form (Student)

RESOLVING FACULTY CONCERNS

Instructors are responsible for reviewing the information provided by the DAC prior to the start of each semester regarding expected accommodations in their course(s). Instructors who believe an approved accommodation represents a fundamental alteration to a course, program or academic activity are encouraged to contact the DAC immediately to resolve the issue informally.

The instructor may file a formal concern with the DAC if attempts to resolve the issue do not satisfy the instructor.

Submit a Concern Form (Faculty)
