Syllabi Statement

Faculty and Staff are encouraged to discuss accommodations with students at the beginning of each semester. Faculty may wish to include one of  the following statements on their syllabi:

  • “Any student with a documented disability should contact the Office of Student Disability Services at 777-6142 to make arrangements for appropriate accommodations.”
  • Students with Disabilities: The University of South Carolina provides high-quality services to students with disabilities, and we encourage you to take advantage of them. Students with disabilities needing academic accommodations should: (1) Register with and provide documentation to the Office of Student Disability Services in LeConte College Room 112A, and (2) Discuss with the instructor the type of academic or physical accommodations you need. Please do this as soon as possible. *All course materials are available in alternative format upon request*
