Course Syllabus

The Office of Disability Services suggests that you include a statement on your course syllabi acknowledging the unique learning needs of students with disabilities and the process for requesting academic accommodations. 

The following is Disability Services' recommended statement for course syllabi:

Accessibility and Accommodations

William Paterson University is committed to providing equitable access to learning opportunities to students with documented disabilities (e.g. mental health, attentional, learning, chronic health, sensory, or physical). Please contact the Office of Disability Services to engage in a confidential conversation about the process for requesting reasonable accommodations in the classroom and clinical settings. Students are encouraged to register with the Office of Disability Services as soon as they enroll, since accomodations cannot be provided retroactively. More information can be found online on their website  at, by contacting the office at 973-720-2853 or visiting the office in Speert Hall, Room 134.
