Student Accessibility Services exists to foster access to students with disabilities so students are able to achieve their educational aspirations. These rights and responsibilities have been documented to work together towards that goal.
When you have been notified by the Student Accessibility Services Director that your documentation or accommodation has been rejected, you have the right to appeal.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) was enacted to protect individuals with disabilities against the problems of discrimination in such critical areas as employment, housing, public accommodation, education, transportation, communication, health services, and access to public service. More information regarding the ADA can be found here https://www.ada.gov/
If you are feeling that the quality of service by Student Accesssibility Services does not meet SCSU expectations, you have the right to file a complaint. To file a complaint:
The ADA requires SCSU to adopt and publish complaint procedures. An individual who believes they have been discriminated against on the basis of disability can file a complaint with the Office of Equity and Affirmative Action.
To file a complaint alleging discrimination notify the Office for Institutional Equity & Access in person or in writing, and provide the following information:
If it is determined that law and/or SCSU policy was violated, a remedy to the problem will be offered. If it is determined that there was no violation, the complainant will be informed, and other options for possible resolution of the complaint will be explained.
