Policy for students with disabilities

 

For Students

Kansas State University is dedicated to providing equal opportunity and access for every student. Any student with a disability who may require academic accommodations should contact Disability Support Services (DSS), 202 Holton Hall, 785-532-6441, dss@ksu.edu.

Students are asked to provide DSS with appropriate documentation of the disability from a qualified professional. Documentation guidelines can be found at www.ksu.edu/dss. Upon student request, DSS will provide eligible students a letter outlining recommended accommodations.  Recommended accommodations are approved by the Dean, Dean of Academic Programs, and Department Head of Clinical Sciences. Letters of accommodation from the DSS office need to be distributed to each instructor, the Department Head of Clinical Sciences, and the Associate Dean for Academic Programs. Testing sites for first and second year students needing accommodations will normally take place in the College of Veterinary Medicine complex. Testing sites for third year students needing accommodations will normally take place at Disability Support Services located at 202 Holton Hall.

For Faculty

K-State and DSS encourage instructors to include a statement in each class syllabus as follows:

“Any student with a disability who needs a classroom accommodation, access to technology or other assistance in this course should contact Disability Support Services and/or their instructor.”

More information about disability services can be found at www.ksu.edu/dss.
