Disability Services (DS) collaborates with students with documented disabilities to provide reasonable accommodations that are individualized and based upon disability documentation, functional limitations, and a collaborative assessment of needs. Students with disabilities who have met with a DS specialist and are not satisfied with their approved accommodations are encouraged to appeal the decision made and meet with the Director of Disability Services. This meeting is an opportunity for the student to engage in additional conversation and to provide supplemental documentation to support a request. Should the appeal not be granted within DS, the next step is for the student to appeal the decision to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Coordinator in the Compliance, Diversity, and Ethics (CDE) office. For more information, click here for the full Appeals Process.
Should the appeal not be granted by the ADA Coordinator, the final step is to file a complaint using the CDE Grievance procedure. For more information, visit their website for the full grievance procedure.
