SAS for Faculty
Thank you faculty!
Academic accommodations for students with disabilities at Kent State University wouldn't be possible without the cooperation and support of faculty. We thank you for your continued support and assistance in providing equal access for students with disabilities at Kent State!
NEED TO KNOW
New to Kent State and not sure how to provide accommodations? This section is for you!
Faculty should include the approved disability accommodation statement in each course syllabus. SAS also recommends reviewing the accommodation statement during the first class meeting. Doing so may increase awareness of the accommodation process and the student's comfort with providing notification, as well as help to assure faculty receive timely notification for accommodation requests.
University policy 3342-3-01.3 requires that students with disabilities be provided reasonable accommodations to ensure their equal access to course content. If you have a documented disability and require accommodations, please contact the instructor at the beginning of the semester to make arrangements for necessary classroom adjustments. Please note, you must first verify your eligibility for these through Student Accessibility Services (contact 330-337-4214 or visit https://www.kent.edu/columbiana/steps-register-sas for more information on registration procedures).
