How do I Request an Accommodation?

A reasonable accommodation is any requested modification or adjustment to job duties or schedule, or to the work environment, that enables a qualified applicant or employee with a disability to participate in the application process or to perform essential job functions. Reasonable accommodation also includes adjustments to ensure that a qualified individual with a disability has rights and privileges in employment equal to those of employees without disabilities.

Academic Setting

Pursuant to University Policy #2310, Academic Adjustments for Students with Disabilities, a student who seeks academic adjustment because of a disability should register with the Accessibility Services Office and submit documentation of the disability from a licensed or certified professional in order to become eligible for services.

Employment Setting

Employees are encouraged to submit a Reasonable Accommodation Request Form pursuant to University Policy #3110, Reasonable Accommodation for Employees with Disabilities. However, verbal notification is sufficient to require the supervisor to take action.
