Instructors must make the following announcement during the first class meeting and to include it on the syllabus: "I would like to hear from anyone who has a disability which may require seating modifications or testing accommodations or accommodations of other class requirements, so that appropriate arrangements may be made.Please contact me during my office hours." An advisor or instructor who believes that a student's academic performance has been affected by an undiagnosed learning disability may wish to talk with the student (again, in a manner that preserves the student's privacy) and possibly refer the student to the Office of Student Disability Services for formal assessment.An instructor who cannot provide the accommodations specified, or who has concerns about the accommodations, must contact the Student Disability Services counselor who signed the request form within 48 hours of receiving the form from the student.The following are examples of course-related accommodations: College policy permits students with specific learning disabilities to complete components of the General Education Program with accommodations, including completion of the Foreign Language component of the General Education Program without completing language courses.During any discussion about the student's disability or accommodations, instructors must meet with a student in the instructor's office rather than in the classroom.
