Sample Syllabus Statement

Please consider including a statement such as the following on your syllabus for next semester to inform students about Access Services and the process for requesting accommodations:  

Bryn Mawr College is committed to providing equal access to students with a documented disability.  Students needing academic accommodations for a disability must first register with Access Services.  Students can call 610-526-7516 to make an appointment with the Coordinator of Access Services, Deb Alder, or email her at to begin this confidential process.  Once registered, students should schedule an appointment with the professor as early in the semester as possible to share the verification form and make appropriate arrangements.  Please note that accommodations are not retroactive and require advance notice to implement.  More information can be obtained at the Access Services website.
