DRS Grievance Procedure

Although staff attempt to work collaboratively with students in facilitating disability-related services, it is possible that misunderstanding or disagreements may arise. If you have difficulty with academic adjustments approved by Disability Resources, please contact the person who initially made the recommendations. If a disagreement about the appropriateness of recommendations continues, speak with the DRS Director. 

Students who are not able to resolve a problem at DRS should request an appointment with the Senior Associate Dean of Students at 215-204-7188. Read the full grievance procedure.
