*Preferential Registration:

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) engages in an interactive process with each student and reviews requests for accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case basis. Depending on the nature and functional limitations of a student’s documented disability, he/she may be eligible to receive preferential registration. Preferential registration allows a student to register for classes on the first day of registration each semester. This provides the opportunity to arrange a schedule (to the greatest extent possible) that is suitable based on their disability-related needs.  The names of students utilizing this accommodation will be shared with the Office of the Registrar.  Preferential registration does not override any College or departmental policies, or the removal of any registration holds. 


*Class Relocation:

Students with classroom access concerns may request a class be relocated.  Students needing such accommodation should contact Student Accessibility Services (SAS) for any problems with classroom accessibility.  SAS will review the request for class relocation, along with disability documentation, to determine a reasonable and appropriate accommodation.  SAS will discuss access needs with each student to determine the buildings/classrooms/locations that provide reasonable access.  Student Accessibility Services will notify the Office of the Registrar of the class relocation request.  The Office of the Registrar will determine an appropriate relocation and notify the faculty of the class relocation.  The faculty member will communicate the class relocation to the students enrolled in the course.  Student should immediately inform SAS of any changes in class schedule or problems with classroom accessibility after the change is made. 


*Pathway Accessibility:

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works closely with students and Office of Facilities to develop a regular priority snow removal schedule for each semester. In an effort to ensure an accessible path of travel for students with a mobility impairment, SAS will submit a student’s class schedule, and housing assignment location to the Office of Facilities.   Office of Facilities creates a map of snow removal priorities, taking accessible entrances into consideration.  The Office of Facilities sends the snow removal priority map to Student Accessibility Services for any adjustments.  SAS will communicate the prioritized snow removal routes with qualified students.  Students are encouraged to communicate any pathway accessibility concerns to SAS. During the day or evening, students may also contact the Office of Facilities to request assistance with snow removal.


*Persistent and ongoing needs will be noted on each accommodation plan.

Office hours/meetings with individuals on campus:
Students may request that office hours and/or meeting with a faculty member, staff member, or member of the administration be arranged in an accessible location if the student is unable to meet in the individuals appointed office or scheduled meeting space.  Requests for alternate arrangements should be made, in advance, to the participants of the meeting so appropriate and reasonable accommodations can be made.  Students in need of assistance with regard to these arrangements should contact SAS.
