We appreciate all that you do to make course materials accessible to all students! We've created accessibility support pages to help you think through online course accessibility.
Refer to our Faculty Info for Proctoring pages for information on how Student Access proctors exams.
The Commodore Access Portal is the third-party platform the Student Access Office uses to communicate accommodation needs between students, faculty, and the Student Access Office. Student Access uses the Commodore Access Portal to send Faculty Notification Letters, Testing Agreements, and other emails related to accommodations and access in your course. Those communications come from a secure address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Instructors play a critical role in facilitating implementation of these accommodations. Frequently, the initial contact about an accommodation will come from the student; occasionally, the first point of contact may be a notification from SA (such as a communication regarding a testing agreement). Following receipt of the initial notification of the need for accommodation, please engage with the student or SA, as appropriate, to facilitate implementation of the accommodation(s). In all circumstances, students must inform you or SA of their intention to use accommodation(s) in your course in advance of the course event for which the accommodation(s) are needed and with reasonable time for adequate implementation. Accommodations do not need to be facilitated retroactively.
Vanderbilt University is committed to providing accessible information, materials, and technologies to ensure that individuals with disabilities have access to university resources comparable to access that is available to others.
Student Access acts as an initial point of contact, conduit of information, and provisioner in matters related to disability accommodation, access, and awareness.
However, Vanderbilt faculty and staff strive to build accessible instructional and informational materials, thus reducing the need for the SAS's support and accommodations. Please let us know if we can aid you in learning how to create accessible materials, and we will do our best to provide resources.
