Office hours and contact information during Safer at Home period
Make a gift to help Whittier students cover unexpected costs as a result of the pandemic
Time extensions on exams will be managed by individual professors since all learning will occur remotely. For students who receive extra time on exams, your professors are aware of the fact that you receive this accommodation and will be providing you with extra time.
Reduced distraction testing cannot be accommodated by SDS since exams will be administered online. As such, it is a student's responsibility to find an environment that is free of distractions and/or utilize headphones and earplugs to minimize distraction during testing.
Note-taking will continue to be provided to students who receive this accommodation. Continue to utilize dropbox to view the notes your note-taker has uploaded for you.
Attendance flexibility has been encouraged for all students since many could experience issues with accessing courses and/or navigating courses online during the transition.
Registered students who receive extensions on assignments (if feasible) as an accommodation are still required to reach out to SDS prior to the deadline or reach out to their faculty, if they prefer doing so, in order to determine if an extension on an assignment is feasible and will not fundamentally alter course requirements. As accommodations are not retroactive, extensions on assignments do not cover past assignments.
The ability to record lectures remains an accommodation our approved students can utilize, as long as they have signed our ability to record lectures agreement.
Students who receive CART (Communication Access Real-time Translation) due to being deaf or hard of hearing will continue to receive this accommodation through remote captioning instead of on-site captioning. We have reached out to the professors of these students to ensure that the remote captioners will be virtually present during lectures.
Please note that we will continue to offer check-in appointments and intake appointments through Zoom, which is an online video communications platform. More information about Zoom can be found online.
If you have any questions about accommodations or would like to register to receive academic accommodations, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
