Classroom accommodations may include priority seating either in the front of the class or near a door, permission to audio record lectures, note taking services, and use of a laptop computer. Depending on the need of the student, accommodations, other than those mentioned above, may be granted.
If a student is approved for accommodations through the University and chooses to use their accommodations in their classes, the faculty will receive the Faculty Notification email from the Disability Support Services (DSS) Office that outlines their academic accommodations.
Students who receive audio recording as an accommodation are asked to sign an agreement with the DSS Office. This agreement prohibits the student from transferring data to websites or other public forums and makes clear that any recordings taken in class are solely for the personal use of the DSS student. Please contact the DSS Office if you would like to see a sample of the Audio Recording Agreement.
