Here is the sample syllabus statement regarding accommodations for students with disabilities that Dickinson College recommends professors incorporate into their syllabi:

Dickinson College makes reasonable academic accommodations for students with disabilities. Every professor is available to discuss the implementation of academic accommodations for students with documented disabilities.  Students requesting accommodations must first register with Disability Services to verify their eligibility. After documentation review, Marni Jones, Director of Learning Skills and Disability Services, will provide eligible students with accommodation letters for their professors. Students must obtain a new letter every semester and meet with each relevant professor prior to any accommodations being implemented.  These meetings should occur during the first three weeks of the semester (except for unusual circumstances), and at least one week before any testing accommodations. The Office of Disability Services is located in Biddle House. For appointments call 245-1734. For more information, see the Disability Services website or email
