Reasonable Accommodation

In accordance with Executive Order 926, California State University San Marcos is committed to maintaining a work environment free of disability discrimination and to providing reasonable accommodation in order to ensure that qualified individuals with a disability enjoy an equal employment opportunity in compliance with state and federal laws, regulations, and systemwide policies.

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

Applicants for Employment
An applicant for a non-faculty position who requires an accommodation during the application process should contact the Office of Human Resources at (760) 750-4416.

An applicant for a faculty position who requires accommodation during the application process should contact the Office of Faculty Affairs at (760) 750-4052.

Employees
A current employee, including a student employee, who is requesting a reasonable accommodation should first contact their appropriate administrator about the need for accommodation.  Any employee may also request an accommodation directly through Labor & Employee Relations. 

If you have any questions or concerns related to the Reasonable Accommodation process, please contact Labor & Employee Relations.

Students
If you are a student in need of a reasonable accommodation, please contact the office of Disabled Student Services (DSS).  DSS is committed to making CSUSM programs, activities, and facilities fully accessible to students with disabilities.
