Accommodations and Services

Students with disabilities may experience barriers that put them at an unfair disadvantage compared with classmates who do not have disabilities. Accommodations provide different ways for knowledge to be accessed or demonstrated. In other words, accommodations level the playing field between students with a disabilities and those without disabilities. At the same time, accommodations may not fundamentally alter the nature of the course or modify the outcomes.

Accommodation refers to any service, equipment, or special arrangement that is put in place to decrease barriers to education that a student might experience as a result of the intersection of their disability and the limitations of the environment.
