Recording Classroom Lectures and Discussion
Students are not permitted to record classroom lectures or discussions without written authorization from the designated Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)/Section 504 Coordinator. Violation of the policy may result in disciplinary action, which could include the suspension or dismissal of the student from the College. The designated ADA/Section 504 Coordinator may authorize recording of classroom lectures or discussions only, and to the extent reasonably necessary, to effect a reasonable accommodation to a student’s documented disability. Once a recording accommodation has been granted to a student, both the student and the ADA/504 Coordinator shall execute an Audio Recording Accommodation Agreement. For information regarding how to request a reasonable accommodation of a disability, please see the Disability Services Accommodations Policy for Students.
For questions regarding disability discrimination and implementation of services offered at Berkeley College, please contact Sharon McLennon-Wier, Ph.D., CRC, LMHC, Director of Disability Services for New Jersey and New York campuses, at 914-694-1122 ext. 3169 or Sharon-McLennon@BerkeleyCollege.edu.

In addition, each individual campus has a Disability Services representative via the Personal Counseling Office.

A student seeking accommodations must schedule an appointment with either the above-stated ADA/504 Coordinators, or a campus Personal Counselor, in order to submit an Application for Disability Services and Accommodations and to confirm requested accommodations.
