上诉或申诉程序

Institutions of higher education have the obligation to make informed decisions about accommodations. These decisions may not always coincide with recommendations from outside professionals or with prior Individualized Educational Programs (IEPs) and 504 Plans.

Students who do not agree with the accommodation decisions of the Office of 可及性服务 should follow the process outlined below.

A student who disagrees with the appropriateness of a decision regarding accommodations should speak first with the Office of 可及性服务 Director Andrea Swift to resolve the issue. 

If a satisfactory resolution still cannot be reached, the student has two options. 学术住宿, 书面申诉应送交首席学术官, 临时教务长玛丽·艾伦·威尔斯. For non-academic accommodations related to medical and physiological disabilities, 包括校园通道(住宅), 教室, social and athletic) written appeals should be sent to the Senior Vice 总统 for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, 玛丽·爱丽丝Ozechoski.

If the provost or senior vice president for enrollment management and student affairs (as appropriate) feels the decision settled upon by the Office of 可及性服务 Director was reached according to ADA guidelines, written notification of the decision will be issued to the student and kept in the student’s file in the 可及性服务 Office.
