Suggested Syllabi Language Regarding the Availability of Accommodations
Accessible Education Services at Eckerd College encourages all faculty (including adjunct faculty) to include a statement on their course syllabi informing students of the availability of accommodations for documented disabilities. Thank you for your cooperation.
Recommended syllabus language includes one of the following statements:
“If you have a disability or believe that you qualify for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act or other laws, please contact Accessible Education Services at extension 8248 or via email at email@example.com as soon as possible. Appropriate accommodations can only be arranged through that office, and may not be made retroactively.”
“Eckerd College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Students with disabilities who need special accommodations must make their requests by contacting Accessible Education Services (located in Edmundson Hall) at extension 8248 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
“Students with physical, cognitive, or psychological disabilities must contact Accessible Education Services, located in Edmundson Hall, at extension 8248 or via email at email@example.com to discuss potential accommodations of other helpful services. All information will be kept confidential.”
