What if a student with a disability is disruptive or acts inappropriately in class?

A student with a disability who is disruptive in class should be treated as an instructor would treat any student who is disruptive in class. If an instructor feels that there is a medical reason for the student's behavior, the instructor can discuss this with a counselor in Disabilities Services to determine if there is a solution to the problem.

All students are bound by the same rules of conduct and expectations in the classroom setting. If a violation of the Student Code of Conduct has allegedly occurred, all complaints should be made to the Director of Student Conduct or the Dean of Students in writing and in detail.
