What accommodations are available?
The College, when requested by the victim, will make every possible effort to provide reasonable accommodations regardless of whether the victim chooses to report the crime to Public Safety or local law enforcement.
The following are examples of available accommodations:
- Change their class schedule, when additional sections of a course are available;
- Withdraw from or retake a class without penalty or receive a tuition reimbursement, if student withdraws from classes;
- Extensions on exams and assignments;
- Access to academic support such as tutoring services;
- Transfer to another SUNY community college with a similar academic program; and
- Modify work schedule or location.
In situations where it is necessary, the College will take immediate steps to protect victims pending the final outcome of an investigation. These steps include the accommodations listed above in addition to issuing no contact orders. Pending resolution of the complaint, the accused may be prohibited from contacting the victim and may be placed on suspension or denied access to campus. Also, the College may change the course schedule of the accused.
