Informing University Personnel of AARC Accommodations
Once the student has been identified as having a documented disability and accommodations have been determined, an accommodations letter is developed for that student. The student’s accommodation information is placed in the Colleague system. At the beginning of each semester, the professors will find an “Accommodations” column on their class roster. A link will appear in this column for each AARC student in the professor’s class. The professor can select the link to view the accommodations approved for that student by the AARC office. The link will remain on the class roster for the entire semester. If a student requests accommodations later in the semester, an email will be sent to each of the student’s professors alerting them to check their class roster for the student’s newly identified accommodations. If a professor is told by a student that he/she has a disability but there is no link on the class roster, the professor should contact the AARC office to determine if the student has been identified through the AARC process.
