Every course needs to have a syllabus statement to identify the process for requesting accommodations due to a disability. Below are two sample statements regarding accommodations to include in your course syllabus. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding what information should be included in your syllabus.
Syllabus Example #1
UW-Green Bay supports the right of all enrolled students to a full and equal educational opportunity. Reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities is a shared faculty and student responsibility. If you need any academic accommodation due to a disability, you must self-identify and register with the Student Accessibility Services (SAS) Office. To register, you will need to complete an online application (GB Access) on the Student Accessibility Services website. GB Access empowers you to request accommodations that would best support your learning in each class. Your request will be sent electronically to the SAS Office for review, approval and dissemination to faculty. Accommodations are not automatically available for each class, each term and do not go into effect until the request through GB Access process is complete. Please contact the SAS office if you have any questions about the accommodation process or our role in supporting your learning. Once your request has been sent, the faculty, SAS office, and you can work together to ensure you have equal access. Location of SAS: Student Services Room 1700; Phone: (920) 456-2841; Email: email@example.com and Website: www.uwgb.edu/sas.
