Student Responsibilities

Accommodations are available but must be requested by the student with the disability. JBU has established a set of procedures that should be followed by all students seeking accommodations to ensure a timely response to their requests. A summary of those procedures follows:

  • The first responsibility is to provide adequate documentation of your specific disability.
  • The second responsibility involves identifying yourself as a student with a disability by meeting with Jackie Wright, Coordinator of Disability Services, jwright@jbu.edu, 479 425-7400.
  • Your third responsibility, then, is to deliver accommodations letters to your professors and talk with them about the accommodations necessary in your situation.
  • Finally, it is your responsibility to contact the Coordinator of Disability Services if you are having problems with these procedures or in your college experience.
