Academic accommodations are designed to ensure access to course content and programming while mitigating disability-related functional limitations that may adversely impact a student’s ability to fully participate in a course or show mastery of content during routine course work and examinations.
- Accommodations do not guarantee academic success; the student is still responsible for:
- learning subject knowledge
- demonstrating mastery of content
- satisfying the essential requirements of courses
- showing progression toward major
- meeting the same demands required of all students
Student Disability Resources engages in an interactive process with each student and reviews requests for accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case basis.
- To receive an academic accommodation, you must request it through the SDR process.
- Your professor is not required to provide academic accommodations until you have presented the accommodation letter to them.
- Written requests for academic accommodation letter must be made each semester. Please email [email protected] to request your academic accommodation letter as early in the semester as possible
- Your professors have the right to deny any academic accommodations that substantially change the curriculum or alter any essential elements or functions of the course. Please discuss any issues with your assigned disability coordinator.
