Academic Adjustments/Accommodations
During the first two weeks of each semester, each student is required to meet with the Director of Services to complete an
accommodations request form and to establish/ review appropriate academic adjustments and services for the semester. Each student is encouraged to notify his/her instructor(s)/ professor(s) of their special need(s) and appropriate academic adjustments for the classroom setting. For example, students may qualify for one or a combination of the following: extended time on tests, different testing strategies, tape recording class sessions, note takers, documented absences due to disability, etc. The Office of Accessibility Program will formally notify faculty of recommended accommodations, provided students give written authorization.
