In line with Title IX and the Americans with Disabilities Act, please include the following statement on each course syllabus and read it aloud during the first week of each term:
Pierpont works closely with full- or part-time students to determine reasonable accommodations that will help students be successful in their schooling. Many students who were under an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or a 504 Plan during high school should qualify for services, as will many other students who might not have received specialized services during K-12. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the Disability Services Office to discuss any disability that might interfere with the pursuit of their education and what type of documentation of the disability will be required. Approved accommodations are determined on an individual basis. Students must provide their professors with a copy of their accommodation letter each semester in order to receive their accommodations. The accommodation letter will be given to the student after the student completes an intake with disability services. Instructors are not required to allow any academic accommodations unless the student provides the instructor with a letter from the Office of Disability Services outlining the necessary accommodations. Appointments may be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by telephone (304) 534-7878 or in person at 231-A Hardway Hall (Locust Avenue Campus).
