Student Accessibility Services
Academic accommodations are put in place to equalize learning opportunities and access to the academic environment for students with disabilities. The functional limitations resulting from a disability can at times intersect with the academic environment in a way that creates a barrier for students. Advisors work with students to determine what barriers they are experiencing specific to their disability and what accommodations would equalize the learning environment for them. Students with accommodations must meet all the academic requirements and standards of their courses.
