The Office of the General Counsel and the Office of Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) recommends that all faculty include a statement similar to the following in their course syllabi and review the statement during the first class period.
“The University of Michigan is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Request for accommodations by persons with disabilities may be made by contacting the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) Office located at G664 Haven Hall. The SSD phone number is 734-763-3000. The written syllabus includes full instructions for requesting disability accommodations at Ross.”
Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
The University of Michigan is committed to providing equal opportunity for participation in all programs, services and activities. Students wishing to receive accommodations must register with the University of Michigan Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office as soon as possible.
Students must submit their official Accommodation Letter from the SSD office to the Ross Accommodations Coordinator at least two weeks prior to the first exam or quiz for which they require testing accommodations. Testing accommodation arrangements are not guaranteed for students who provide less than two weeks’ notice.
Students verified for accommodations must submit their Accommodation Letter at the start of each semester through the electronic portal called Accommodate. This can be done using the Semester Request feature. For Ross courses, these letters will route directly to the Ross Accommodations Coordinator who will communicate and coordinate all accommodated needs with the student’s instructors at Ross. The day the Accommodation Letter is sent will be used to determine two weeks’ notice.
In rare cases, the need for a testing accommodation arises after the two week deadline has passed (example: a broken wrist). In these cases, the student should still contact SSD and the Ross Accommodations Coordinator. However, due to logistical constraints, we cannot guarantee that testing accommodations can be made with less than two weeks’ notice.
