Types of Accommodations
Exam Accommodation Service
Many students with disabilities require accommodations for test taking. The Exam Service
assists academic departments in determining and providing exam modifications/accommodations.
Using psychological and medical information regarding the student's disability, appropriate
exam modifications are made. The Office of Disability Services will consult with and
negotiate any conflicts between student and instructor. Upon written request of the
student and the instructor, the Office will provide the exam accommodations and directly
administer the exam to the student.

The Office of Student Disability Services provides accommodations to students with
temporary disabilities arising from injury, surgery, or short-term medical conditions.
To receive accommodations for a temporary disability, the individual must submit a
note from either their personal physician or Student Health to our office indicating
the type of disability, limitations, prognosis, and estimated duration. Additionally,
the student should contact all instructors to discuss means of completing class requirements
and exams during the period of temporary disability.
This service will provide small group and individualized instruction and assistance
in learning strategies and study skills which are targeted to the specific strengths
and deficits of the student. This service will be structured as a series of workshops,
individualized sessions, or the student will be referred to other available campus
resources or classes.
Screening & Referral for Diagnosis
The Office of Disability Services will provide an initial screening prior to a referral for a Learning Disability or Attention Deficit Disability (LD/ADD) assessment. Students experiencing academic difficulty not due to an undiagnosed LD/ADD will be referred to the appropriate campus student support services office(s).
