Classroom and Academic
Accommodations

Registering with Disability Services is an interactive process that involves student self-report, a Disability Services Specialist’s observation and interaction, and information from external sources (e.g., documentation from a healthcare provider). Disability Services collaborates with students to provide reasonable accommodations that are individualized and based on documentation, functional limitations, and a collaborative assessment of needs. Examples of academic accommodations include (but are not limited to):

  • Audio recording lectures (e.g., SmartPen)
  • Assistive technology
  • Sign Language Interpreters/Transliterators
  • Furniture modifications
  • Reduced distraction environment for tests, exams, and quizzes
  • Additional time/breaks for tests, exams, and quizzes
  • Foreign language and quantitative reasoning exemptions
  • Priority registration (Fall and Spring semesters only)
  • Reduced course load
  • Physical access–every effort is made to reduce barriers to classrooms and other university facilities. Students with accessibility concerns should contact Disability Services as soon as they become aware of the need for this type of accommodation.
