UW Oshkosh Faculty & Staff
When should I refer a student to Project Success?
How will I know if a Project Success student is in my class?
Students are encouraged to speak with you during your office hours to introduce themselves and describe their specific accommodations and learning needs. Many students will be advocating for the very first time and will be coached by the Project Success staff. Every student in the Project Success program will have an accommodation plan that indicates their individualized accommodations, based on their documentation. This will be electronically sent to you once the student has filled out their semester request on Accommodate.
Please visit the Accommodate site for more information about Accommodate and your responsibility as a faculty or staff member.
What should I do if I have a concern about an accommodation request?
If you have any concerns about an accommodation listed on the student’s individualized Accommodation plan, it is best to first speak with the student. If you feel that a certain accommodation will jeopardize the content being assessed, please call the Project Success office to determine an appropriate resolution.
How do I work with the student to arrange accommodations?
The Project Success office works with UW Oshkosh faculty members and students to provide efficient and effective accommodation arrangements. It is primarily the student’s responsibility to complete the necessary paperwork to arrange any given accommodation.
Signatures on an Accommodation Plan
The electronic signature requested for accommodation plans is the instructor’s acknowledgment that the student shared their accommodation plan and notified the instructor of their intent to utilize accommodation in the course.
Signing the accommodation plan will also allow instructors to easily view students in their current courses who have approved accommodation plans through both the UWO Accessibility Center and Project Success.
Accessing a Student’s Accommodation Page
Faculty and instructional staff members can view student accommodation plans by selecting the Accommodation Letters tab on the home page of Accommodate.
Both requested and signed accommodation plans will appear in the list.
Instructors can click on a student’s name to view their plan. The accommodation letter will include whether the student is affiliated with the Accessibility Center, Project Success or both offices.
What is the best way to monitor or track the students in my course who are in Project Success?
