Professor Notification

Professor Notification

Our students are rising adults; therefore, the Learning Center employs a self-advocacy approach to disability disclosure.

 The Comprehensive Advisor will give each student a personalized letter for each professor. The letter states the name and contact information of the student's Comprehensive Advisor and acknowledges the existence of the student's learning disability. 

  • The Comprehensive Advisor will coach each student to describe the need for accommodations to faculty.
  • The student should share this letter with the professor of the class for which accommodations are being requested.
  • The professor may contact the student's Comprehensive Advisor as a resource in providing effective strategies that may enhance the learning process, or to verify the accommodation request.

 Each student’s educational evaluation/disability documentation will be kept in a locked file in the Learning Center office. To reiterate, the Learning Center does not notify the student’s professor; the student is responsible for making a specific request to the professor of each class to implement authorized accommodations.

 In order to receive testing accommodations, the student must provide the required documentation for the disability in a timely manner to the Learning Center office and must comply with the procedures for accommodations that have been described in the Learning Center Handbook.
