Appeal Procedures:

Upon rare occasion, agreement about reasonable accommodation cannot be reached. In such cases, the following steps should be followed:

  • The student or College member should contact the DSS Coordinator on their campus to review an accommodation decision. The DSS Coordinator will attempt to facilitate a mutually acceptable accommodation agreement.
  • If no acceptable agreement can be reached, the request for reconsideration will be forwarded to the Program Director of Disability Services for Students. The Program Director will attempt to facilitate a mutually acceptable accommodation by discussion with the student, the professor, department chair, and the Academic Dean of the respective department as needed.
  • If no acceptable agreement is reached at this level, the issue will be forwarded to the Dean of Opportunity. The Dean will review the information, request additional information if necessary, and make a final decision. The Associate Dean will transmit a decision to the student, the College member and the Program Director of Disability Services for Students.
  • Any student who is disturbed by or experiences incidents of Bias, Discrimination or Harassment may contact Elizabeth Canning, Director of Institutional Equity & Title IX Coordinator at (401) 825-1230 or via email at ecanning@ccri.edu.
