The College of Law is devoted to the inclusion and success of students with disabilities and those in need of special accommodations.
The accommodations we provide may include:
- Special services for deaf or blind students, including CART, large print or audio books
- Special accommodations on tests, including additional time and minimally distracting test environments
- Note taking services; accommodations for physical disabilities such as special locker locations
- Other accommodations as needed and authorized.
Accommodations are arranged through the Center for Disability Resources (CDR) at Syracuse University and the Office of Student Affairs at the College of Law. The first step in seeking an accommodation is to visit the CDR website. Students will need to provide necessary medical documentation through the online portal to support their records. CDR will then recommend the appropriate accommodations. For additional information please visit https://disabilityresources.syr.edu/students/lawstudents/
Students who receive accommodations should bring his or her CDR accommodation authorization letter to the College of Law Office of Student Affairs. The Office of Student Affairs will then work with the student and, where necessary, the faculty to ensure that the proper accommodations are available. That said, accommodation provisions are kept confidential, wherever possible, from faculty and students.
The service is free and students are urged to begin the process as soon as possible.
NOTE: If you would like to visit the College of Law and need accommodations, please contact the Office of Admissions.
