Explanation of student accommodations
Whether you have a permanent or temporary disability, we are here to provide students reasonable and appropriate accommodations. After you've registered with our office and submitted documentation from a qualified professional, we will review the documentation and set up a meeting with you to learn more and determine any accommodations based on your individual situation. Once you've qualified for an accommodation, it's up to you to decide if and how you'll use it. Here are some samples of possible accommodations.
