Disability Services

Accommodations: Faculty

  • Accommodations - It is the responsibility of the student to inform their instructors of their accommodations by sharing the Accommodation Letter that has been provided to the student by this office.
  • Syllabus: Should contain a statement such as this: “It is college policy to provide Accommodations and Academic Adjustments to students with disabilities. Any student who has a disability who may need accommodations in this class should register with Student Disability Services which is located in VC2-271 as early as possible.  All discussions will remain confidential. 646-312-4590.”
  • Exams – If a student is registered with Student Disability Services, and has extended time for an exam which cannot be accommodated in the classroom, the student should visit this office (VC2-271) at least five days prior to the exam to sign in.  Evening students should discuss with you, their instructor, an alternate time to take the exam in this office. 

If a student is taking the exam with us, please hand deliver it to VC2-271 or email to disability.services@baruch.cuny.edu

Please, DO NOT email to a person in this office that you happen to know. If you do that, the exam may sit in her/his inbox because naturally we do not read each other’s email!

We all have access to the generic disability.services@baruch.cuny.edu

  • Assistive Technology – Some students may use recorders, FM Units, Tablets, or other devices in your class as an accommodation.  The Accommodation letter will state what their specific accommodation is.
  • Requests for Sign Language Interpreters, Laboratory assistants, or Auxiliary classroom aids should be made by the student well in advance of the beginning of each semester to ensure we have time to make the necessary arrangements.
  • Questions – If you have any questions about a student, accommodations, exams, or anything related to disability, please visit us or call. We would be happy to meet with you to discuss any concerns and address any issues.
