Disability Support Services
Accommodations are modifications to the
academic requirements that are necessary to ensure equal access to qualified
individuals with a disability. Students are granted reasonable
accommodations based on the documentation provided of their disability.
Accommodations are tailored to meet individual needs. Examples of
accommodations include extended time for testing, books in alternate format,
assistive aids and equipment, notetakers, and interpreters. A minimum of
four weeks notice may be needed to provide some accommodations.
Accommodations that are of a personal nature
or will impact the essential requirements of the individual program of study
will not be provided. Examples include personal care attendants and
waiving of required coursework.
In addition to providing students with
accommodations and handling disability-related concerns, Disability Support
Services provides numerous additional services to students with disabilities
