Accommodation Decision Appeal Process

Students, staff, faculty and guests are able to appeal accommodation decisions made through Accessibility and Disability Resources using this process. To use this process, an individual first will have needed to have completed the accommodation request process.

Individuals wanting to appeal the decision must do so in writing within 14 days of the notice of the accommodation decision. The appeal should include a statement explaining the reasons why the decision is being appealed, and may also include additional documentation of disability. The appeal is to be sent to Accesibility and Disability Resources, who will convene an appeal review committee and render a written decision, typically within 30 days.

The Appeal Review Committee will provide individuals and the Director of Accessibility and Disability Resources an opportunity to present information useful to understanding the appeal. The Committee may decide to uphold the previous accommodation decision, support the appeal request, decide on an alternative, or decide that new information has been submitted which necessitates further review by the Director of Accessibility and Disability Resources.
