Reasonable Accommodation & Interactive Process

University MPP, Staff or Academic Employees:


Sacramento State provides reasonable accommodations for employees, including applicants for employment, with sensory, mental or physical disabilities. A reasonable accommodation is an accommodation that enables (1) applicants to apply for vacant positions or employees to perform the essential functions of their position, (2) is medically necessary, (3) and does not create an undue hardship.

It is your responsibility to contact the Office for Equal Opportunity and request an accommodation. You are not required to disclose to your immediate supervisor the medical basis for a requested accommodation. If additional information is needed to respond to your request, the University may request that you ask your health care provider to confirm your disability and/or the need for the requested accommodation.

Medical records are confidential and are maintained in the Office for Equal Opportunity, not in departmental files.

To request an accommodation, or if you have questions regarding the accommodation process (including requests for accommodation related materials in an alternative format, interpreters, etc.), please contact the Office for Equal Opportunity by phone at (916) 278-5770, by fax at (916) 278-3411, by email at, or by campus mail to campus zip 6014.

For workstation ergonomic evaluations unrelated to a sensory, mental or physical disability, please contact Environmental Health & Safety at (916) 278-6456 or visit their website at to learn more about ergonomic resources. You do not need to go through the accommodation process for a standard ergonomic evaluation.

Please note that the Ergonomic Evaluation Process is different than, and separate from, the ADA/FEHA Reasonable Accommodation process. Office equipment identified as necessary through the Ergonomic Evaluation process is the responsibility of the employee’s department, unless the employee has a qualifying disability and the equipment addresses the employee’s limitations.  That determination will be made through the interactive process.
