KU Edwards Campus and Accommodations

Overview

The process of determining reasonable and appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities is a collaborative one among the student, Disability Resources (DR), and the faculty. Students seeking disability accommodations for classes at the KU Edwards Campus must first provide Disability Resources on the Lawrence Campus with qualifying disability documentation. Disability documentation guidelines can be found on our web site at: : View Disability Guidelines

To submit documentation, students can provide a copy to the Student Success program director. The program director will forward the documentation to the appropriate staff member. Students may also send their documentation via fax at 785-864-2817 or by mail to: Disability Resources 1450 Jayhawk Blvd. Room 22 Lawrence, KS. 66045

Disability Resources is responsible for determining student eligibility for accommodations, recommending reasonable and appropriate accommodations for each class, and facilitating the approved accommodations in consultation with the student and faculty.

Faculty are responsible for working with students and Disability Resources to be sure that students may have equal and timely access to course material and to test-taking situations. This may mean early notification of required text so that it can be converted to an accessible format, assistance in identification of volunteer note takers, advance planning for alternate test locations, or inclusion of a sign language interpreter in the classroom or other appropriate accommodations.
