SAS Syllabus Statement

As an instructor, it is important that you notify students that they can request accommodations and provide them with the information necessary for them to request accommodations. This notification not only provides students with a reminder about the steps they need to take to activate their accommodations, but it also signals your willingness to help implement student accommodations. 

Instructors should include the following statement on their syllabi:

According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (as amended, 2008), each student with a disability has the right to request services from UNH to accommodate their disability. If you are a student with a documented disability or believe you may have a disability that requires accommodations, please contact Student Accessibility Services (SAS).

Accommodation letters are created by SAS with the student. Please follow-up with your instructor as soon as possible to ensure timely implementation of the identified accommodations in the letter. Faculty have an obligation to respond once they receive official notice of accommodations from SAS, but are under no obligation to provide retroactive accommodations.
