Disability Support Services
Students who experience disabilities and face barriers within the educational setting may be eligible for academic adjustments to level the playing field.
Adjustments are provided through the accommodation process which is defined by three basic steps:
- Student initiates a request
Students meet with their DSS contact and make a request
(documentation of disability is required).
- Accommodation strategy is defined
Appropriate adjustments are determined through a combination of documentation review, student experience, and best practices.
- Accommodation is put in place
Adjustments are put in place when students deliver faculty notification letters that have been prepared by DSS.
- ASL Interpreters
- Extended testing time
- Note-taking assistance
- Alternate format materials
- Assistive technology
