- Specifies that DSS is responsible for determining which accommodations must be provided to a student. If a faculty member disagrees with an accommodation because they feel like it is an undue hardship or fundamental alteration of an educational program or activity, the faculty member has three instructional days to request review of DSS’ decision. The student also has three instructional days to request review if they believe the accommodation is not adequate.
- Requests for review are initially handled by the DSS manager and department chair. If they are not able to find an amicable solution within five business days, the matter is escalated to the dean of students or designee and the dean. These two individuals make the final decision about what accommodations must be provided.
