Academic Accommodations

    "The Key to Success"

Line divider

What is an accommodation form?

An accommodation form is a document issued by the Office of Special Services for students with special needs. It is intended to provide flexibility and equalize opportunities for success.

Based on a careful review of the documentation provided by the student, the accommodation form describes the academic modifications that will become part of the student's program.

Accommodations cannot compromise the contents of a course or the essential requirements of a degree. It is the student's responsibility to transmit the accommodation form to his or her professors.
