SSD Policies & Procedures

Requesting Accommodations

Students requiring accommodations for any course due to a disability are required to register with SSD and provide documentation of the disability.

  • For a detailed explanation of the process for registering with SSD, select Register with SSD from the menu on the left.
  • Select Disability Documentation for a detailed explanation of SSD's documentation requirements.  The following form and checklist will help students and diagnosticians with documentation requirements:

Syllabus Statement

SSD recommends that the following statement be included in the syllabus for any course taught at Weber State University:

"Any student requiring accommodations or services due to a disability must contact Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) in Room 181 of the Student Services Center (or Room 221 at the Davis Campus). SSD can also arrange to provide course materials (including this syllabus) in alternative formats upon request."

The following contact information may also be helpful and can be included as part of a verbal announcement during the first course session:

Contact SSD by phone at 801-626-6413 - Ogden; or 801-395-3442 - Davis

Or email us at

Accommodations for Events & Activities

The department or organization sponsoring any event at WSU is responsible for providing any necessary accommodations.  Individuals requiring an accommodation for an event or activity should contact the sponsor directly.

If you are a WSU Department, Club, or Organization, SSD recommends that the following statement be included in your event advertising (posters, flyers, etc.):

"Weber State University, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, ensures equal access to all university functions, activities, and programs for individuals with disabilities.  Please contact [person to contact] at [email/phone number] at least one week prior to this event to request accommodations in relation to a disability.

It is acceptable to include the last sentence only instead of the entire statement.  The exact wording can be customized as needed so long as the intent of the statement remains clear.
