Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
Students with approved documentation are eligible to receive reasonable and appropriate accommodations determined on a case-by-case basis. These services may include, but are not limited to:
- Alternative testing procedures
- Extended time (requests must be made at least 7 days prior to the exam)
- Separate location
- Note takers and Livescribe Pulse Smartpen
- E text
- Enlarged print
- Sign language interpreters
- Adaptive equipment
Students are encouraged to request a letter each semester to notify their instructors of their classroom accommodations. We recommend that students register with CETL and formalize services, even if they may not be required during the semester. Circumstances may change, and this assures notification is set up in advance. Access coordinators are available to work with instructors and to provide disability-specific resources to better inform their work with students as needed.
CETL has designed online systems for submitting extended-time test accommodations and note-taking requests, as these are used most frequently by students with disabilities. Other classroom accommodations are set up through individual consultation with the student's assigned coordinator.
