CUNY Procedures for Implementing Reasonable Accommodations and Academic Adjustments

In order to ensure that requests for reasonable accommodations and academic adjustments for members or prospective members of the University community are reviewed and addressed thoroughly and in accordance with applicable law, the University has adopted new procedures. These procedures replace the 2005 Procedures for Implementing Reasonable Accommodations at CUNY.

The new procedures outline how students, prospective students, employees, job applicants, and visitors can request accommodations or academic adjustments and describe the individualized, interactive process that the College will follow in responding to such requests. They also provide a mechanism for appeals of accommodation and academic adjustment decisions. As you will see, the new procedures include a process for obtaining accommodations and academic adjustments based on (a) disability, (b) pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition, (c) religion, and (d) status as a victim of domestic violence, sex offense, or stalking.
