Students who are currently registered with Disability Support
Services (DSS) and wish to continue receiving services are required to
meet with a DSS administrator at the start of each new term. We strongly
encourage students to make appointments before classes begin.
Appointments can be made by calling (973) 313-6003 or requested by
e-mail at DSS@shu.edu. During this
meeting, the student's accommodation history will be reviewed and
current course load discussed. Concluding the session the DSS
administrator will create accommodation letters for students to present
to their professors. We encourage students to meet with faculty during
office hours to discuss accommodations in detail.
Students that require specific academic and environmental
accommodations, (e.g. adaptive software, accessible classrooms, CART
services, interpreters) are strongly encouraged to contact DSS at least
three weeks before the start of the new term. Students that require
alternate format materials (e.g. large-print, e-text) are encouraged to
meet with a DSS administrator as soon as classes are selected.
