Student Responsibilities

Notification of Semester Accommodations

It is the responsibility of the students to submit a UDS Disclosure Letter Request for each class in which they wish to receive accommodations. This must be initiated in a timely manner, preferably just before the start of the semester, to ensure accommodations are in place. Accommodations cannot be applied retroactively.

Semester Meetings

Once accommodations are established, students are encouraged to meet with the Director every semester they are enrolled at Bloomsburg University.  This meeting should be scheduled in a timely manner to discuss how your accommodations are impacting academic success.  

Self-Advocacy

It is the responsibility of the student to be a good self-advocate by initiating a request for services, providing documentation, informing of needs, and discussing questions pertaining to academics with faculty. The University Disability Services staff are here to assist you as needed. Communicating changes in accommodations or other needs as they may arise is imperative. It is the student's responsibility to contact University Disability Services if there is a concern with the quality of accommodations or if there are questions regarding the accommodation process.
