Information for Faculty

If you have questions about the Academic Adjustments and Auxiliary Aids or Services listed on a SAS, we encourage you to reach out to the DRC Academic Coach who signed the SAS. We are happy to clarify the purpose of any accommodations. 

Disability Resource Center coordinates services for students with documented disabilities.

Students who have registered with the Disability Resource Center and are in need of Academic Adjustments or Auxiliary Aids or Services, will provide you with a copy of their Student Accommodation Statement (SAS) signed by the Disability Resource Center Academic Coach.

Generally speaking, you are not required to provide accommodations to a student who has not provided you with a Student Accommodation Statement. If the disability is an obvious one, though — a student in a wheel chair, for example — you don't need a Student Accommodation Statement to arrange for a raised computer table that permits the student access to the computer.

Student Accommodation Statements (SAS) can change over time, even though many disabilities do not change. To ensure that students' needs are being met, students should meet with their DRC Counselor at least once a year. An SAS is effective for one year. There are times when a temporary SAS is developed, but it is labeled as such and an expiration date is noted.

Some students experience barriers to information access in a classroom.  There are a variety of ways to overcome these barriers. Here are some examples:

  • A peer in the class to provide copies of their notes
  • A copy of instructor's notes
  • A staff Reader/Writer
  • A digital recorder
  • Notetaking Software
