Faculty must include a statement on the course syllabus that addresses accommodations and access for students with disabilities. The following statement has been developed by SDS, and approved by the Provost’s office, for use on course syllabi.
Disability Access and Inclusion:
The University of Mississippi is committed to the creation of inclusive learning environments for all students. If there are aspects of the instruction or design of this course that result in barriers to your full inclusion and participation, or to accurate assessment of your achievement, please contact the course instructor as soon as possible. Barriers may include, but are not necessarily limited to, timed exams and in-class assignments, difficulty with the acquisition of lecture content, inaccessible web content, and the use of non-captioned or non-transcribed video and audio files. If you are registered with SDS, you must log in to your Rebel Access portal at https://sds.olemiss.edu/rebel-access-portal
to request approved accommodations. If you are NOT registered with SDS, you must complete the process to become registered. To begin that process, please visit our website at https://sds.olemiss.edu/apply-for-services
. SDS will:
- Complete a comprehensive review to determine your eligibility for accommodations,
- If approved, disseminate to your instructors a Faculty Notification Letter,
- Facilitate the removal of barriers, and
- Ensure you have equal access to the same opportunities for success that are available to all students.
