At Dartmouth, we are committed to providing equal opportunities to all students. Accommodations are determined on an individual basis through an interactive process that includes the student and Tuck. Our accommodation process is based on federal law and Dartmouth guidelines. Students may request an accommodation at any time. Please note that it may take up to 2-3 weeks to complete the accommodation request process.
The process is coordinated by the Dartmouth ADA Office in collaboration with Tuck Associate Dean Sally Jaeger.
We aim to make the accommodation request process straightforward and accessible for all students. If you have any questions regarding this process, the Dartmouth ADA Office is available to assist you. You can contact the ADA Office at ADA@dartmouth.edu.
Accommodation Request Process:
- Submit an Accommodation Request Form via http://dartgo.org/grad-arf, which includes the ability to attach supporting third-party documentation. Review Documentation Guidelines.
- The ADA Office will contact the student to schedule a meeting with the student and discuss their accommodation request in greater detail.
- The ADA Office will review the information submitted during the meeting and with the accommodation request form, including self-report and documentation. The ADA Office will also gather any relevant information from Tuck necessary to fully evaluate the accommodation request. The ADA Office will follow up with the student if any additional information is necessary.
- An accommodation decision will be made and communicated to the student and Tuck Associate Dean Jaeger. When an accommodation is put into place, clear instructions for implementation and support will be provided to the student.
- The ADA Office remains a resource after the accommodation process is complete. Students may ask for new or different accommodations at any time, and students should contact the ADA Office immediately if they have any trouble using their accommodations. This includes any challenges related to how the accommodations are implemented or fit into your classes, and any issues or resistance with faculty and staff.
It is the student's responsibility to make their needs known and provide the appropriate documentation to support the need for requested accommodations. Students may request new or different accommodations at any time. We encourage students to immediately contact the Dartmouth ADA Office and Tuck Associate Dean Sally Jaeger if they have any questions or concerns.
