Syllabus Statements

We recommend that your course syllabus should include a statement inviting students with disabilities to discuss in advance their need for accommodations.

Here is a sample statement:

"If you are a student with a disability and believe you will need accommodations for this class, it is your responsibility to contact Student Disability Services at (619) 594-6473.  To avoid any delay in the receipt of your accommodations, you should contact Student Disability Services as soon as possible.  Please note that accommodations are not retroactive, and that I cannot provide accommodations based upon disability until I have received an accommodation letter from Student Disability Services.  Your cooperation is appreciated."
