Syllabus Notice

We would like to suggest that you include the following paragraph in your syllabi. It is designed to reinforce students' responsibilities regarding accessibility-related accommodations and services. The information in the brackets { } needs editing, for example, whether your course has a laboratory component, and whether that lab coordinator needs the forms indicated. Feel free to include additional information specific to your course.

Suggested syllabus paragraph

Please note: Students registered with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) who will be using accommodations in the classroom {or the lab}, or who will be writing exams through SAS, are required to provide a "Letter of Accommodation" to me {and a separate letter to the lab coordinator} as soon as possible. Those students who need accommodated exams must provide me {and the lab coordinator} with an Exam Instructions & Authorization form one week before each exam. You are encouraged to make an appointment with me {and the lab coordinator} to discuss any required accommodations.

An optional addition to the syllabus can be:

For students who write exams with accommodations at SAS, please be cognizant of their deadlines and regulations. If you fail to meet these deadlines or follow the procedures, the result is most likely that SAS will be unable to provide the necessary space and/or services you require. In these situations, the department of { } does not have the resources to provide accessibility-related exam accommodations, and you will be invited to write your exams with peers during the allotted time in the assigned room.
