As part of the California State University (CSU) system, Stanislaus State is committed to ensuring equitable access to educational opportunities to qualified students with disabilities.  In both practice and policy, Stanislaus State adheres to the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended 2008 (ADAAA); Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; and all other federal and state laws and regulations prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability.  To meet these regulations and statutes, the CSU system established the Policy for the Provision of Accommodations and Support Services to Students with Disabilities and Executive Order 1111: The California State University Policy on Disability Support and Accommodations.

Stanislaus State’s Accommodation Appeal Review Process may be initiated when a student is dissatisfied with a Disability Advisor’s (DA) response to an accommodation request.  In conjunction with the accommodation appeal review, students shall notify Disability Resource Services (DRS) of concerns as soon as possible. Students shall work collaboratively with DRS to explore possible resolutions. A student must complete and file an Accommodation Appeal form and submit it and all supporting documentation with the Office of Disability Resource Services. Documentation may include medical records that clearly support the requested accommodation as necessary due to the functional limitations associated with the student’s disability. 

Accommodation Appeal Form

You can submit an online copy of the Accommodation Appeal Form or download a printed form and return it to DRS.

The DRS Director will review and evaluate the Accommodation Appeal Form and supporting documentation, if any, and make a determination within ten (10) working days of receiving the appeal. 

Current accommodations as determined by the DA will continue to be in effect, in order to provide access during the appeal review process, with any additional issues to be resolved as quickly as possible.

Students who are dissatisfied with the Disability Resource Services Director’s recommendation may file a Grievance.
