The Relay community is committed to supporting students with physical, learning, medical, psychiatric, or other disabilities. To demonstrate the existence of a disability that may entitle students to reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and related laws, students must complete the process outlined on the disability volunteer disclosure form on Support Center. This process may include scheduling an accommodation meeting with the campus Dean's Office, securing an official document that verifies the disability is related to the Relay program, meeting with a campus Dean's Office representative, and submitting the Disability Volunteer Disclosure Form to OAE by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The campus Dean's Office will review students’ registration information and supporting documents and begin coordinating support and/or accommodations. If appropriate, Relay may refer students to professional resources when deciding the level of disability and the level of further help and support required. This support and/or these accommodations will be monitored, reviewed, and adjusted as necessary.
For students with physical disabilities, Relay will ensure that access to classroom facilities is appropriate and relocate teaching areas if required. Relay will also ensure that, where possible, all classroom facilities are accessible and, where this is not feasible, ensure that alternative arrangements are made and that support and assistance are provided whenever possible.
