SAMPLE SYLLABUS STATEMENTS
The Office of Disability Accommodation has provided this compendium of disability statements which may be used “as is” or modified. Note that different University schools have different personnel and offices. The Office of Disability Accommodations headed by Denise LeClair and covers Arts and Sciences, Nursing, and Business.
Any student who requires accommodations to complete the requirements and expectations of this course because of a disability is invited to make his or her needs known to the instructor and to the Office of Disability Accommodations.
If you have a disability which will require testing or classroom accommodations, please see me during the first week of classes. Reasonable accommodations will be made after verification from the Office of Disability Accommodations.
If you have a disability and wish to discuss academic accommodations, please make an appointment with me during my office hours. A letter from the Office of Disability Accommodations verifying your accommodations will be needed.
If you have a disability for which you need an accommodation, you are encouraged to contact both your instructor and the Office of Disability Accommodations located in the Old Gym, Room 437, (402-280-2166) as early as possible in the semester.
Students with disabilities who require special accommodations need to get a letter that documents the disability from the Office of Disability Accommodations (280-2166). This letter should be presented to me at the beginning of the semester so we can discuss accommodations.
