The formation and fulfillment of student Academic Adjustment Plans is a fully individualized and interactive process. As such, students with concerns about the elements of their individualized Plan, or its implementation, are encouraged to first speak with a Student Accessibility Specialist who may work with the student and relevant staff/faculty. If the issue is not adequately resolved by these conversations, then students should contact the Manager of Student Accessibility Services. If this does not lead to an equitable and timely resolution of the concern, students may contact Ithaca College's Director of Equity Compliance.
