Implementation is a shared responsibility of faculty and students.
Students must inform faculty in a timely manner of their need for
an accommodation based on a disability.

are expected to work with students to identify and provide a reasonable
accommodation, following the principles identified in the Faculty
If the students and the faculty member cannot agree on a reasonable
accommodation, the department's designated Access and Accommodation
Resource Coordinator (as identified under the Faculty Senate policy)
will try to resolve the disagreement.
If the disagreement is not resolved within the department, the student
can appeal to the College by submitting a letter to the Associate
Dean for Academic Student Affairs. The Associate Dean will refer the
matter to the Committee on Scholastic Policies and Actions for advice.
The student can appeal the decision of the College to the campus
committee designated to hear appeals under the Faculty Senate Policy
