Current Students

Overview

Current students are encouraged to meet with an access coordinator early in the semester to become acquainted and talk about classroom accommodations. However, requests to discuss accommodations are welcome at any time. To schedule an appointment, visit our office in Dewey Hall, Room 1-154 or email your completed Student Information Form to Disability Resources and our staff will arrange a meeting with the appropriate access coordinator. Students may wish to submit professionally prepared documentation in advance. However, students need not have documentation in hand to consult with an access coordinator.

Accessibility

Buildings must be accessible to persons with physical disabilities. Websites and course materials must be accessible to students with hearing or visual impairments. If you encounter a situation where we can provide help or suggest improvements, please contact us.

You can also report accessibility concerns online on the University’s equal opportunity website or by contacting Lynnett Van Slyke, the disability compliance director, at (585) 275-1925 or l.vanslyke@rochester.edu.

Confidentiality

Supporting documentation regarding the existence and the nature of a student's disability is generally considered private. Accordingly, without written consent from the student, information contained in the disability file is kept confidential to the maximum extent possible. Disability-related information will also be kept separate from the student's academic record.

Access to a student's disability file is limited to the local access coordinator, the University disability resource coordinator, and other University officials who require access to the information to perform their professional responsibilities, or who need access to protect the health or safety of the student or others.
