FALSE! Instructors are responsible for providing the accommodations listed on the NOAS form. If a student wants additional accommodations, do not immediately refuse. Listen to their concerns. Our college does not want to fundamentally alter the course. After hearing his or her concerns, contact DSP&S. We will help. DSP&S will have an interactive discussion with student and faculty to determine if any additional reasonable accommodations need to be made.
FALSE! DSP&S does not excuse absences as an academic accommodation as that would be a fundamental alteration to the course. Students are the primary person responsible in notifying instructors of all absences. In extreme circumstances when a long-term absence which is disability related occurs and notification by the student is not possible, the DSP&S office will assist the student in notifying instructors.
