Academic Accommodations

Disability Services works to proactively identify and remove barriers to access in order to promote inclusion and minimize the need for accommodations. When access is not achieved proactively through design, individual accommodations provide an alternative means to achieve access.

It is the responsibility of each student to make their disability status and need for accommodations known. Plans for accommodations are created through an interactive process that includes the student, the faculty, and the Disability Services staff.

Once a student has completed and submitted the Accommodation Request form, Disability Services will email a Course Accessibility letter to each instructor. 

Students are strongly encouraged to meet with each instructor to review the accommodation requests. Students or faculty can contact Disability Services if there are any questions about the accommodations.
