AccessAbility Services : Faculty and Staff Resources

Syllabus Statement

In compliance with the ADA, all students with a documented disability are entitled to reasonable accommodations and services to support their academic success and safety. Students must request accommodations to the learning environment through AAS. Though a request for services may be made at any time, services are best applied when they are requested before the start of the semester. In order to promote students to request accommodations, WCSU requires that faculty include a disability statement in a “course syllabi”.

Students with Disabilities: AccessAbility Services engages in an interactive process with each student and reviews requests for accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case basis. Depending on the nature of the functional limitations of the student’s documented disability, he/she may be eligible for accommodations. AAS collaborates with students and their faculty to coordinate approved accommodations and services for qualified students with disabilities. If you have a documented disability for which you are or may be requesting an accommodation, you are encouraged to contact AccessAbility Services (AAS) as soon as possible. You may contact AAS by calling (203) 837-8225 (voice), (203) 837-3235 (TTY) or by e-mailing Detailed information regarding the process to request accommodations is available on the AAS website at: AccessAbility Services ( If your request for accommodation(s) is approved and you request accommodation letters, an accommodation letter will be emailed to faculty members. (Note: Student request for accommodations must be filed each semester and accommodations are not retroactive.)
