Disability Accommodations – Classroom & Final Exam Procedures *DEADLINE*
It is the policy of our law school to make reasonable accommodations for students whose disabilities entitle them to accommodations.
The initial accommodation request process is very time-consuming. This poses a particularly serious problem when a student requests an accommodation late in the term pertaining to the taking of examinations.
To ensure adequate time to process accommodation requests, students should contact Disability Resources for Students as soon as possible to begin the accommodation process. Since gathering the information required for accommodations often involves considerable time and effort, students requesting accommodations for the first time should make every effort to begin the accommodation request process by Monday, February 23, 2015.
Students who have previously received accommodations while in law school should contact their coordinators at Disability Resources for Students to request accommodations by Friday, March 20, 2015.
Disability Resources for Students is committed to assisting students in obtaining appropriate accommodations, but accommodations requested after Friday, March 20, 2015 (both initial requests and continuing requests) are not guaranteed to be in place by the time law school exams begin on Monday, April 27, 2015.
A student who may be entitled to an accommodation should contact Disability Resources for Students, 110 Wilder Tower, at (901) 678-2880.
If you are unsure whether you might qualify for an accommodation or wish to talk with someone about the process, please contact Susan TePaske, Director of Disability Resources for Students, (678-2880).
