Accommodations and Services
Qualified students with disabilities may receive reasonable accommodations that provide greater access to classroom instruction and to the academic programs. These accommodations are individualized, flexible and are based on how your disability may impact you in the academic environment. Each semester, you, the Student Support Specialist, and the faculty involved share responsibility for deciding on and arranging reasonable accommodations.
Some typical accommodations and services offered are:
- Extended testing on exams
- Quiet testing area
- Use of a calculator
- Course relocation
- Individual support meetings
Other accommodations are available, and are determined on a case by case basis.
The Student Support Specialist must be notified at least two weeks in advance in order to pursue the needed accommodations or services. Extra time may be needed for accommodations that require more planning.
