Students who need and request academic accommodations for their online courses must have a Student Accommodations Plan established at their home colleges with the appropriate Academic Accommodations/Disabilities Services staff persons. Students are required to follow the policies/guidelines established at their home college; therefore, each college's documentation requirements and process will vary slightly.
Faculty and staff must complete the steps outlined in the Academic Accommodations Process below before any accommodations are granted to online students. This must be done to help ensure that all documentation is on file, the correct accommodations are granted and that all students within the course are given the same opportunity to successfully complete the course.
It is the student's responsibility to inform the Academic Accommodations staff person at his/her college that accommodations are needed.
In some cases, the Academic Accommodations staff person may decide to email or call instructors prior to the start of the term to discuss a student's Accommodations Plan.
