Reasonable Accommodation

California State University San Marcos is committed to providing a diverse and supportive academic and work environment that facilitates learning, teaching, working, and conducting research for all students, employees, and visitors.  We are dedicated to providing an inclusive working environment where all individuals are treated with dignity and respect.

In alignment with these values and in compliance with Executive Order 1111 qualified individuals with a disability shall be provided a reasonable accommodation in order to perform the essential functions of their job.

When an employee or applicant for employment requests a reasonable accommodation so that they may safely and effectively perform the essential functions of their position or participate in the employment application process, their request will be considered in accordance with the CSUSM Procedure for Requesting a Reasonable Accommodation. The interactive process with the individual requesting an accommodation typically includes a review of appropriate documentation from the individual's medical provider. It is the responsibility of the individual requesting accommodation to provide sufficient information, upon request, to support the need for the accommodation requested. 

Requesting Accommodations

A current employee, including a student employee, who is requesting an accommodation for a disability, as defined by the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), should first contact their appropriate administrator about the need for an accommodation.  The appropriate administrator should notify the appropriate Human Resources Manager in the Office of Human Resources (OHR) so that they can assist the employee with the formal accommodation request process.

Any employee may also request an accommodation directly through the Office of Human Resources. 

If you have any questions or concerns related to the Reasonable Accommodation process, please contact the Office of Human Resources.


If you are a student in need of a reasonable accommodation, please contact the office of Disability Support Services (DSS). DSS is committed to providing opportunities for higher education to students with disabilities and to making the programs, activities, and facilities at CSUSM fully accessible.
