Accommodations are determined on an individual basis, based on a thorough intake interview with the student and an Access Specialist, identifying the barriers the academic environment presents to the individual with a disability. We also review third-party documentation from doctors, schools, or clinicians to assist in determining reasonable accommodations.


Accommodations which are commonly appropriate include, but are not limited to:

  • Extended time on exams
  • A separate, low-distraction room for exams
  • Attenuating earplugs for exams
  • Notetaking support through Sonocent AudioNotetaker
  • The ability to record lectures. (One possibility is borrowing a CAAS Livescribe Smartpen)
  • Alternate text formats (books in audio format through Read&Write Gold, Bookshare, or LearningAlly; Braille; large print, etc.)
  • Using a reader and/or scribe for exams
  • Use of computer on exams
  • Priority registration
  • Support in breaking assignments into smaller parts with incremental due dates
