For Faculty & Staff
Students with disabilities attend FIU for the same reasons as all students do, and bring with them diverse experiences and interests. The DRC encourages you to partner with us and become change agents as we strive to empower students with disabilities.
When academic requirements present barriers to students with disabilities, reasonable accommodations may be necessary. Accommodations are determined on an individual basis and should not reduce academic standards.
The DRC will contact you via your FIU instructor email if a student enrolled in your course has elected to utilize their accommodations. This Notification of Academic Adjustment or Letter to Professor (LTP) will contain important information regarding the student's assigned accommodations. Contact information for the student's assigned Access Consultant will be included in this notification, should you want to discuss the student's accommodations.
