CS 473: Accommodations

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Any student who has suppressed their directory information pursuant to Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) should self-identify to the instructor to ensure protection of the privacy of their attendance in this course. See https://registrar.illinois.edu/academic-records/ferpa/ for more information on FERPA.

Disability-Related Accommodations

Students requiring extra time or other exam accommodations should discuss their needs with the Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES) as soon as possible.

If you are concerned that a disability-related condition may be impacting your academic progress, academic screening appointments are available that can help diagnose a previously undiagnosed disability. You can request an academic screening appointment by following the "Request an Academic Screening" link at the bottom of the DRES Web site.

Students requiring disability-related accommodations must provide Jeff with a copy of their DRES accommodation letter at least one week before accomodations are actually required, ideally as close to the start of the semester as possible.

Religious Observances

Illinois law requires the University to reasonably accommodate its students’ religious beliefs, observances, and practices in regard to admissions, class attendance, and the scheduling of examinations and work requirements. You should examine this syllabus at the beginning of the semester for potential conflicts between course deadlines and any of your religious observances. If a conflict exists, please notify the instructors of the conflict at least one full week before accommodations are required, and follow the procedure at https://odos.illinois.edu/community-of-care/resources/students/religious-observances/ to request appropriate accommodations.
