5.5 Important University Notices
If you have a disability that requires instructor consideration please contact the Director of Disability Services at 724-838-4295. It is recommended that this be accomplished by the second week of class. If you need accommodations for successful participation in class activities prior to your appointment at the Disability Services Office, you should offer information in writing that includes suggestions for assistance in participating in and completing class assignments. It is not necessary to disclose the nature of your disability.
[Note -- our J-Term class is so short that waiting until the second week to let me know of any disability needs may be too late for either of us to do any good. Please get me this information as soon as possible.]
