According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, no otherwise qualified person with a disability shall be denied a benefit or opportunity or be excluded from participation solely on the basis of that disability. Student Disability Services at Baruch provides students with disabilities the accommodations necessary for them to access all Baruch has to offer.
A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a course, program, service, activity or facility that enables qualified students with disabilities to have an equal opportunity to attain the same level of performance or enjoy equal benefits and privileges as are available to students without disabilities.
An accommodation may be appropriate for one particular course but not for another. Accommodations are not retroactive; requests for accommodations should be supported by appropriate documentation and should be submitted in a timely manner. Students may request a review of accommodations and/or provide updated documentation as necessary during the semester. A record of receiving accommodations is confidential and is not part of your CUNY transcript.
Please make your request for accommodations in a timely manner to give us the opportunity to get them in place in a timely manner for you.
If at any time you wish to request a change to your accommodations, simply contact SDS and schedule an appointment to meet with a disability professional.
