Sample #3

I am committed to supporting the learning of all students in my class. If you have already registered with Disability Services Office and have your letter of accommodations, please meet with me early in the course to discuss, plan, and implement your accommodations in the course. If you have or think you have a disability please contact the Disability Services Office at 617-552-3470. (adapted from St. Olaf College) ​

Sample #4

Your experience in this class is important to me. If you have already established accommodations with Disability Services Office (DSO), please communicate your approved accommodations to me at your earliest convenience so we can discuss your needs in this course.

If you have not yet established services through DSO, but have a temporary health condition or permanent disability that requires accommodations (conditions include but not limited to; mental health, attention-related, learning, vision, hearing, physical or health impacts), you are welcome to contact Dean Rory Stein, (rory.stein@bc.edu), Assistant Dean for Students with Disabilities.

DSO offers resources and coordinates reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities and/or temporary health conditions. Reasonable accommodations are established through an interactive process between you, your instructor(s) and DSO.  It is the policy and practice of Boston College to create inclusive and accessible learning environments consistent with federal and state law.
