Accommodation Policy and Information

Faculty Notice Regarding CEA Accommodations  

Faculty are responsible for providing reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities when they request them in meeting program and course requirements, consistent with university (Faculty Handbook: Academic Responsibilities of Faculty, 2.2 Workload, Academic Policy Series 1520.10 & 1520.20) and Center for Educational Access (CEA) policies and procedures. The university's Keep Teaching website, which provides general remote/hybrid teaching resources for faculty, has a Disability-Related Accommodations and Accessibility Guidelines page to refer to.

CEA staff are available to work with you to identify appropriate strategies to meet disability-related access needs and limit the impact to student learning, as courses are transitioned to an online environment. Although more communication may be required, guidance is provided below on how to facilitate common accommodations in an online setting. Also, you may use the CEA Faculty Login to review academic accommodations for students registered in your course(s).
