Accessible Syllabus Template
ETSU hopes to make all course syllabi accessible by the start of the Fall 2016 semester. To aid in this process, an accessible syllabus template has been developed and is available for download and customization.
Instructors should inform all students of their procedures for accessing accommodations at the beginning of each semester. This is preferably through a statement include in the syllabus to ensure students with disabilities are aware of their rights regarding accommodations.
It is the policy of ETSU to accommodate students with disabilities, pursuant to federal law, state law and the University's commitment to equal educational opportunities. Any student with a disability who needs accommodations, for example note taking assistance, exam time adjustment or seating placement, should meet with Disability Services. Faculty accommodation forms are provided to eligible students and should be shared with the instructor as early in the semester as possible. Disability Services can be reached via telephone at (423) 439-8346 or web at https://www.etsu.edu/students/ds/
