Faculty are notified of student accommodations through a Course Accessibility Letter (CAL). The student must initiate the request for the CAL, which comes from Student Accessibility Services via email. The CAL will outline all required accommodations for the student. Students can request CALs at any point in the semester, though accommodations are not required to be applied retro-actively.
SAS encourages students to talk to their instructors about how they want to use their accommodations. Instructors are also encouraged to reach out to students when they receive a CAL. CALs outline the minimally required accommodations that can be used by students. As the instructor, you can provide additional flexibility or other reasonable accommodations as you see fit. If questions arise during the conversation with your student, please contact SAS.
As the instructor of the course, your input is highly valued in determining the appropriateness of certain accommodations. If you receive a CAL with an accommodation you feel would alter your ability to assess the course learning outcomes, please contact SAS within seven business days. SAS will review the course and follow up with instructors and students if the accommodation is not appropriate for a course. Instructors should not deny accommodations prior to speaking to SAS.
