Disability Accommodation Request Process
At Dartmouth, we are committed to providing equal opportunities to all students. Accommodations are determined on an individual basis through an interactive process that includes the student and Thayer.
Accommodation Request Process
- Submit an Accommodation Request Form, which includes the ability to attach supporting third-party documentation. Review the documentation guidelines to ensure the necessary criteria are met.
- The ADA Office will contact the student to schedule a meeting with the student and discuss their accommodation request in greater detail.
- The ADA Office will review the information submitted during the meeting and with the accommodation request form, including self-report and documentation. The ADA Office will also gather any relevant information from Thayer necessary to fully evaluate the accommodation request. The ADA Office will follow up with the student if any additional information is necessary.
- An accommodation decision will be made and communicated to the student and Thayer Assistant Dean Holly Wilkinson. When an accommodation is put into place, clear instructions for implementation and support will be provided to the student.
The ADA Office remains a resource after the accommodation process is complete. Students may ask for new or different accommodations at any time, and students should contact the ADA Office immediately if they have any trouble using their accommodations. This includes any challenges related to how the accommodations are implemented or fit into your classes and any issues or resistance with faculty and staff.
It is the student's responsibility to make their needs known and provide the appropriate documentation to support the need for requested accommodations. Students may request new or different accommodations at any time. We encourage students to immediately contact the Dartmouth ADA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org and Thayer Assistant Dean Holly Wilkinson at email@example.com if they have any questions or concerns.
