Accommodations can only be provided by the CLASS office if your instructor is informed. Disclosing that you are working with CLASS to your faculty can be of great benefit to you during the semester as it will open lines of communication between you, your Specialist and your instructors.
You do not need tell your instructors specific information about your disability, only that you have been found eligible for accommodations through CLASS. If you choose to share details regarding your disability with your professors, you and your Specialist can work together on how to initiate that conversation. One example of the benefits it can provide you is that it can lead to a helpful discussion of your academic strengths and challenges.
There are two forms that are completed for each course for which you are requesting accommodations:
You officially disclose that you have a disability through the Professor Letter. This letter confirms your connection with CLASS and indicates which accommodations you are eligible to receive for each specific course.
After you receive the letters from your Specialist, you should:
- Present the letters to each of your professors the next time you have class with them or during their office hours.
- They can keep the letter for their reference.
- Your professor needs to have your letter before you submit any proctor requests.
For each test or quiz that you want to take in the Groves Lab, you will fill out a Proctor Request in Moodle.
