Faculty & Staff

Faculty Welcome

Hello and welcome to Services to Students with Disabilities here at CSUSB. Together in our partnership with you, our valued faculty, we will assist our students with differences to succeed in the classroom and in life.



Faculty-Specific Resources for Accommodating Students

Should you ever find that you have questions or are in need of support in your efforts to clearly understand, implement or provide accommodations to your students, please reach out right away to our office by email or by phone or in person in order to get the information you are seeking.

Course Syllabus Policy and Accommodation Language

The Faculty Administrative Manual (FAM 820.9) indicates that all course syllabi must include a: statement of

  • ADA compliance,
  • including contact information to SSD, and
  • a reminder that it is the student's responsibility to seek academic accommodations for a verified disability in a timely manner.


Syllabus Language

Please feel free to cut and paste this language directly into your syllabus.

"If you are seeking classroom accommodations under the ADA, you are required to register with the Office of Services to Students with Disabilities (SSD). If you are taking classes at the San Bernardino Campus (SBC), SSD is located in UH-183. At the Palm Desert Campus (PDC), SSD is located in RG 203A. You can telephone the SBC-SSD at (909) 537-5238, or the PDC-SSD at (760) 341-2883, ext. 78117, or email them at To receive academic accommodations for this class, please obtain the Faculty Notification Letter from SSD. Students should inform their instructors about the type of assistance that may be required in the event of any emergency, and also to contact the SSD office regarding special needs for evacuation."
