Recording a Classroom Lecture and Discussion Policy

Students are not permitted to record classroom lectures, tutoring/support sessions with the Center for Academic Success, or support sessions with the Berkeley College Library 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 the above-mentioned support sessions 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 Accessibility Services Accommodations Policy for Students (PDF).

For questions regarding the implementation of Accessibility Services offered at Berkeley College, please contact Katherine Wu, Director of Accessibility Services, at 646-502-8237 or Katherine-Wu@BerkeleyCollege.edu.

These Personal Counselors work with the ADA/Section 504 Coordinators for the purpose of reasonably accommodating students with disabilities. A student seeking accommodations must schedule an appointment with either the above-stated ADA/Section 504 Coordinators, or a campus Personal Counselor, in order to submit an Application for Accessibility Services and Accommodations and to confirm requested accommodations. Contact information for the College Personal Counselors can be found on the College Health and Wellness website.
