Disability ServicesFaculty Guide
Faculty and staff requesting accommodations for their own disabilities must contact HR Disability Services.
Such testing accommodations can either be provided directly by course instructors or by Disability Services (for undergraduate students), or through the program’s Graduate Liaison (for graduate students). Many instructors have been able, and prefer to coordinate these accommodations with assistance from their teaching assistants. If faculty members choose to provide accommodations, they must be prepared to:
Provide an appropriate testing environment, including a dedicated testing space that is quiet, offers minimal distractions, and provides the ability to take and complete the exam without interruption;
Ensure that students with disabilities have the same exam opportunities and resources as all other students (e.g., the opportunity to ask clarifying questions related to the exam).
All exams must be delivered to Disability Services at least one day prior. Exams can be sent via email firstname.lastname@example.org, by fax at (212) 854-3448 or dropped off at the Disability Services main office (Lerner Hall, 7th Floor).
