Course Syllabus Disability Statement
Learning support services and accommodations are available to
students covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Institutions of Higher Education are required to notify students
that if they have a documented disability they may be eligible for
classroom and/or testing accommodations.
Students must also be notified of the procedure for making the
request. Including a statement such as the one below on all course
outlines will insure proper notification of the required procedures
for requesting and receiving academic accommodations.
A statement may be placed on your course syllabus indicating
your willingness to provide reasonable classroom and testing
accommodations to students with disabilities. This statement acts
as an invitation for students with disabilities to meet with you,
in a confidential environment, to review course requirements and to
discuss their disability-related needs.
You are encouraged to use the following statement on your course
It is the policy of Mount Saint Mary College to accommodate
students with disabilities in accordance with federal and state
laws. If you, as a student with a disability, have difficulty
accessing any part of the course materials or activities for this
class, please notify the instructor immediately.
Accommodations for test-taking should be arranged in advance.
