In accordance with University policy:
The university is committed to providing equal access for students with disabilities to all of its programs and services in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. If you have a disability that entitles you to instructional accommodations and/or modifications, you must register with the Office of Disability Services at the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE) and arrange to provide them with documentation of your disability, if not already submitted. The office is located at the Academic Center for Excellence on the second floor of the university library and is open Monday - Friday 8:30 A.M. - 4:30 P.M. They can be reached by phone (given in the course syllabus) or via email (also, given in the course syllabus). The Disability Services Office will provide you with letters of accommodation for your professors as appropriate. You should then arrange to speak with your professors as soon as possible (ideally within the first week of class) to discuss arrangements for implementing your accommodations. Accommodations are never applied retroactively therefore it is critical that you make your accommodation arrangements before you actually need them.
