The Office of Accessible Education (OAE) serves all students with disabilities (undergraduate, graduate, and law). Providing for these accommodations is federally mandated under ADA and 504 law.
While teaching at Santa Clara University you may be notified by email from the Office of Accessible Education that you have a student registered in your class with a documented disability and the accommodations that they are eligible for in the course you are teaching. These eligibilities may include extended time to take exams, a note-taker, use of a computer for essay exams or consideration regarding attendance or assignment dates among others. Please know that a careful review of each student’s documentation has taken place prior to this email being sent. Academic accommodations shall not fundamentally alter or change the course requirements.
Students are encouraged to meet with professors to discuss how the approved eligibilities listed in the email you receive will be managed. This meeting should occur within the first two weeks of each quarter. Students newly diagnosed and registered with OAE may be approved for accommodations at any time during the quarter.
