Americans With Disabilities Act Grievance Process
Services provided by the Accessibility Services Center are available through links provided on the Academic Resources section of the Student Handbook. A student who disagrees with an action or decision of a disability support provider, faculty member, or University administrator, may file a grievance with the Director of Career Development, who serves as the University's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) coordinator for students. The grievance must be submitted in writing using this form. Within thirty (30) days of receipt of the complaint, the ADA Coordinator or designee will review the information, meet with the student, interview witnesses as appropriate, and issue a written decision.
The student may appeal the ADA Coordinator's decision to the Office of the Provost within fifteen (15) calendar days of receiving the written response. The provost will respond to the appeal in writing, in a format accessible to the complainant, within fifteen (15) calendar days from the complainant's appeal.
If a period longer than thirty (30) days is needed for the ADA coordinator to complete an investigation and render a decision, the student will be notified of this in writing and given a specific time-frame for a decision to be made.
If an appeal is submitted and a period longer than fifteen (15) days is needed for the Provost to complete an investigation and render a decision, the student will be notified of this in writing and given a specific time-frame for a decision to be made.
