Disability Services

It is Seattle University and Seattle U Law policy that no qualified person, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation, denied benefits or subject to discrimination in any university job, facility, program or activity. Seattle U Law provides reasonable accommodations for students with a disability.

Procedures

  • It is your responsibility to provide us with adequate notice of your disability and request a particular accommodation.
  • Contact the Associate Dean for Student Affairs Students if your disability may require some type of accommodation, including but not limited to, course load modifications, exam accommodations, or note takers.
  • The Associate Dean will determine the appropriate accommodation after considering the student’s request or any alternative means for accommodation, their feasibility, and the cost and effect on the academic program and standards.
  • If the accommodation request relates to facilities or physical accessibility to Sullivan Hall, the student should contact the Associate Dean for Finance and Administration.

Documentation requirement

  • All students requesting accommodation are required to provide appropriate documentation for the disability from a qualified diagnostician that establishes the nature of the disability, evaluative data supporting the current need for accommodations, and a listing of recommended services.
  • Cost and responsibility for providing the evaluation are borne by the student.
  • Specifically, the documentation must include:
    1. A statement identifying the nature of the disability experienced by the student.
    2. A description of the type of evaluation methods or procedures used, the results and the date of the evaluation.
    3. A description of the current functional impacts(s) of the disability.
    4. The credentials of the diagnosing professional(s).

Important notes

  • We are not required to make academic adjustments or program modifications that are essential to the program of instruction or that fundamentally alter the nature of the program, goods, or services, or that create an undue burden for the Law School.
  • In addition, the law school will not provide attendants, individually prescribed devices, readers for personal use or study, or other devices or services of a personal nature.
