The process of accommodation usually starts with contacting the Student Affairs office and discussing needs and possible accommodations. Student Affairs works closely with faculty and the academic program offices to arrange for accommodated exam administration and other types of academic modifications.
Discussions and information regarding a student’s disability will be kept confidential unless a student requests otherwise. Documentation appropriate to the requested accommodations must be provided to the Student Affairs office and is kept on file and not shared with any faculty by Student Affairs unless necessary and agreed to by the student. This documentation must come from a qualified professional and provide information on diagnosis/specific disability conditions, functional limitations in the higher education setting, and recommended accommodations. The purpose of this documentation is to enable us to determine, together with the student seeking accommodations, the most appropriate accommodations for the student. Students are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Affairs to discuss present and future needs to facilitate effective planning.
