If you have a disability for which you are or may be requesting an accommodation, you are encouraged to contact both your instructor and the Director of Learning Resources Center, Dr. Lou Ann Sears, Room 240 in Millstein Library, as early as possible in the term.

If the IEP does not have test scores and does not substantiate the requested accommodations, you will be asked to provide additional documentation. See guideline sheets below.
