Welcome Faculty!

CASS partners closely with faculty to support students with disabilities at Caltech.

This page provides information and resources to help with common student accommodations and guidance on how to implement them to ensure fairness and equity.

Please feel free to reach out to CASS at any time if you have questions about this process, concerns about an individual student with a disability, or would like guidance - we are here to help!


Accommodations are adjustments designed to eliminate or reduce access barriers to the college environment for students with disabilities. They are not intended to provide an academic edge or advantage. Reasonable accommodations are determined through an interactive process with the student and CASS and are based on a student's functional limitations related to their disability. Faculty will also be consulted in the interactive process when appropriate.

If you have questions about implementing any approved accommodation, or if a student is requesting an unapproved accommodation, please feel free to reach out to CASS.
Note: Students may register for accommodations at any time while they are at Caltech, but completed registration requests may take up to 30 days to process. Approved accommodations are not retroactive, meaning that they will not apply to any tests, assignments, absences, or other situations prior to when the student was approved by CASS.
