Learning Support Services Home


Examples of accommodations that can be granted if specifically justified by documentation include:
  • Extended time on exams

  • A quiet place for taking tests

  • Permission to record lectures on tape

  • Use of a non-programmable calculator

  • Use of computer based technologies for reading and/or written work

  • Textbooks on tape

  • Large Print (CCTV)

  • Use of Kurzweil Reader/Scanner

  • Note taking: Please see instructions for setting up note taking. Note taking can be arranged through different means depending on individual needs, including identifying a classmate with the assistance of your instructor (peer note taker) who is willing to take notes. Notes may also be taken by recording lectures, use of personal equipment such as lap top computers or other electronic note taking devices.

  • Sign Language Interpreter

  • Assistive Listening Devices (COMTEK)

  • Reader/Scribe

A reader reads material either on audiotape or in person for a student who cannot make effective use of written material. A scribe is a person who writes for a student who is unable to write effectively due to a disability. Readers and scribes do not provide textual interpretations or alterations of content. They are passive participants in the reading/writing process.

In instances where an accommodation is denied, the student can discuss or provide a written statement about the decision to the Director of Learning Support Services for review.
