Students are responsible for keeping track of progress toward their degrees. The final responsibility for knowing all policies and procedures stated in the catalog remains with the student.
Academic Accommodations Policy
Gallaudet University has a legal obligation under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) to provide reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities in addition to being deaf. Students who seek course accommodations, modifications, or substitutions can find guidelines and procedures for obtaining accommodations based on their disabilities on the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSWD) web site, sa.gallaudet.edu/oswd.xml. The Reasonable Accommodation policy is also online: http://www.gallaudet.edu/eop/reasonable_accommodations.html.
Gallaudet Student Handbook
The Gallaudet Student Handbook is produced by the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs and Academic Support. Although it provides a resource and reference guide to some University operations, policies, and regulations, additional material is found in University catalogues, publications, departmental brochures, and official University memorandums. Students should be familiar with the latest policies and procedures so promulgated. They supersede all others. The Gallaudet Student Handbook is online: http://www.gallaudet.edu/student_affairs/student_handbook.html.
