University ADA Statement for Course Syllabi

Any student who believes s/he may need an accommodation based on the impact of a
documented disability should first contact a Coordinator in the Office of Accessibility Services,
Hatcher Hall, 740-351-3106 to schedule a meeting to identify potential reasonable
accommodation(s). Students are strongly encouraged to initiate the accommodation process in
the early part of the semester or as soon as the need is recognized. After meeting with the
Coordinator, students are then required to meet with their instructors to discuss the student's
specific needs related to their disability. If a student does not make a timely request for disability
accommodations and/or fails to meet with the Coordinator of Accessibility Services and the
instructor, a reasonable accommodation might not be able to be provided.
