Accommodations may include a laptop for notes, laboratory assistance, course materials in alternative formats, a reduced course load, and/or extended time on assignments for academic accomodations and other accommodations used when regarding housing and food restrictions or concerns.
At the beginning of every semester all students with academic accommodations will need to request their approved accommodations by submitting a Class Accessibility Letter (CAL) request. Following the student's request for academic accommodations, a Class Accessibility Letter will be sent via email to student.
Note: The student will deliver the Class Accessibility Letter to instructors and make plans with them to ensure appropriate access to accommodations.
Exam and Test Proctoring
When space and staffing is available, Student Access Services can proctor an exam. However, this option cannot be guaranteed as it is based on the regular demand and schedule for Student Access Services testing services.
- Note: Decisions regarding testing accommodations are made in consultation with the student and the Office for Student Access Services based on the individual student and their disability. Exam/Test Proctoring Request Form.
For students who require temporary assistance:
- The primary responsibility to address concerns in the classroom rests with the student and professor. Students should consult with the professor(s) to explore options that will help in the classroom.
- Student Access Services is available for a consultation to discuss additional options and to verify information for the professor as necessary. The student will get more benefit from the Student Access Services consultation if they have spoken with the professor(s) first.
