Retroactive Accommodations

It is a student’s right not to disclose if he or she has a disability or utilize accommodations. If a student decides not to disclose a disability, utilize accommodations, give permission for the accommodations letter to be sent or is diagnosed after completing work that does not accurately reflect his/her ability accommodations will not be given retroactively.

The student in this situation is encouraged to take steps to ensure accommodations are in place for future assignments or activities by contacting the Director of the Academic and Disability Services Office to begin the accommodations process or by contacting staff or faculty to initiate the accommodations process when notification of eligibility for accommodations has already been made.
