It is the student's responsibility to identify accommodation needs to Disability Services. Students should not assume information about the disability included in the student's application for admission has reached Disability Services.
To initiate accommodations, the student must:
- Schedule an appointment with the Assistant Dean of Academics and Student Life or the Assistant Director of Academic Success by calling x8069 (or 909-748-8069)
- Provide documentation of the disability to Disability Services. See Documentation Guidelines.
- Complete the Intake Form. Students will have the opportunity to sign a Release of Information Form with Disability Services (FERPA).
The University of Redlands will make reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities which substantially limit a major life activity. These accommodations may include, but are not limited to, exam accommodations (quiet place, additional time) books on tape, and notetakers. Accommodations which fundamentally alter the nature of the course or program are not appropriate. The University does not provide personal assistants or individual personal tutors.
It is recommended that first-year students contact Disability Services prior to the start of classes, or within the first two weeks, and the student's accommodation plan will be determined at that time. Prospective students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Disability Services while visiting the campus to learn about available resources.
