What are Accommodations?

Accommodations give the student with a disability the opportunity to demonstrate academic abilities and provide equal access to the learning environment. Individualized accommodations are not designed to give the student an advantage over other students or change a fundamental aspect of the class. Accommodations are of no charge to the student.

Accommodations may include: 
  

  • Extended time for testing
      
  • Distraction reduced setting
      
  • Tutoring
      
  • Books on tape or CD
       
  • Note takers
       
  • Tape recorded lectures
       
  • Readers for exams
       
  • Scribes for exams
       
  • Priority Registration
       
  • Assistive Technology
       
  • Use of a calculator for math exams
       

The Learning Disability Specialist will determine accommodations based on the testing results and the educational history of the student.
