Academic Accommodations for students with disabilities

The student counselor provides special accommodations to students with disabilities. The goal is to give the student with a disability equal access to the learning environment.

A student with a disability must register with the office of the student counselor who  provides  support  services  for  students  with  disabilities,  in  order  to  receive accommodations.  It  is  the  student's  responsibility  to  request  services  in  a  timely manner   by   submitting   medical   reports   and   related   documents.   The   course instructors typically receive a letter/ mail from this office detailing recommended accommodations  for  a  student.  The  student  with  a  disability  is  responsible  for meeting  all  course  requirements  using  only  approved  accommodations.  After consultation  with  the  student,  a  review  of  the  student's  documentation,  and  any necessary   consultation   with   outside   specialists,   the   student   counselor   will determine  what  accommodations  may  be  appropriate  and  necessary  and  will communicate in writing to the instructor of the course involved regarding specific recommended accommodations.

The   following   are   examples   of   classroom,   assignment,   and   examination accommodations that may be recommended for a student with disability.
