  • Admission/registration assistance, advising, and advocacy.
  • Accommodations for classes, including:
    • Testing accommodations (extended time, reduced distraction, reader, scribe)
    • Alternate format (computer text with digital audio, Braille) options
    • Technology (computer software and hardware and other devices) assistance
    • Service Providers (sign language interpreter, classroom aide)
    • Accessibility information, maps, and basic mobility orientation

Who is eligible for accommodations?

Any student with a documented disability.

Please provide documentation of disabilities for which accommodations are requested.

Disability documentation must adhere to the following standards:

  • the evaluation including the diagnosis should be current and dated
  • have been conducted by a qualified professional
  • the documentation should include the evaluation, name, title, and professional credentials, state licensure or certification number and original signature
  • evaluations must be completed within the last three years
  • recommendations and rationale for accommodations will be based on the analysis of the functional impact of the diagnosis

 

Student Accessibility Services will determine the appropriate services, accommodations, and/or assistive technology on an individual basis after reviewing the provided documentation and meeting with the student.

Insufficient documentation can result in the delay of services and accommodations.
