General Information for UAS Faculty
What if a student in my class needs accommodation?
Should a student in your class require an academic accommodation (e.g. extended testing time, note-taking assistance, etc) a notification letter typically hand-delivered by the student will be provided to you which identifies those accommodations. If a student approaches you requesting accommodations based on disability without a notification letter from this department, you are under no obligation to provide accommodations; however please refer the student to DSS.
Please Use a Syllabus Statement
To inform students of this department, it is recommended that the following be included in your first class session announcements and on your syllabus:
If you experience a disability and would like information about support services, please contact Disability Services, located at the Student Resource Center in the Mourant building. Phone # 796-6000.
Including a link or URL address to the Disability Services homepage is also recommended: http://www.uas.alaska.edu/dss.
Disability Support Services serves as a resource for questions regarding academic accommodations including those relating to technology, and other disability issues. If you have any questions or concerns about serving students with disabilities or would like more information on a specific disability related issue please contact our office at 796-6000 or email us at email@example.com
