Notice of Disability Resource Services

California State University policies require all students requesting academic accommodations to register with our Office of Disability Resource Services (CSU EO 1111 and Coded Memo AA-2014-08).

Students who are approved to receive disability-related accommodations will provide you a DRS Letter of Accommodations. If a student is unable to provide you the DRS letter, DRS will email you the letter. DRS provides notice of University-approved academic accommodations only. If a student requests work-related accommodations, please refer them to Christina Knott, (209-667-3351).

DRS Letter of Accommodations thoroughly explains the University-approved accommodations provided to a student after appropriate documentation has been reviewed by the office. If any part of the letter is unclear or if you have questions, please contact DRS at 209-667-3159.

Please know that all accommodations in a DRS Letter of Accommodations are discussed with students and agreed upon before the letter is distributed. Providing unapproved accommodations could lead to unanticipated consequences. If you believe a student requires a different accommodation or the student discusses an alternative accommodation with you, please refer them back to DRS. Students denied a specific accommodation by DRS, are provided an accommodation appeal and grievance process as required by CSU policy.

More information about the Accommodation Denial Appeal and Grievance Process can be found on the Policies, Procedures and Guidelines DRS website.

Please contact DRS if you have questions and thank you for making Stanislaus State an equitable and accessible university.
