Academic Accommodations

Academic accommodations are adjustments designed to remove barriers due to a disability and promote access within your classes. Accommodations do not alter the expectations of a course or change the course content. They can support your ability to learn and demonstrate your knowledge by removing obstacles.

Common Examples of Academic Accommodations include:*

  • Extended time on exams
  • Course materials and textbooks converted to an alternate format (e.g., digital or braille)
  • Text-to-speech software

*Not an exhaustive list

Common examples of housing accommodations include:*

  • Accessible room
  • Single room - disability/medical need
