Disability Services

By offering a variety of services and resources, we are able to support and encourage students so that they may achieve their academic and personal goals. (source)


Academic Resources

Together with the student, we plan accommodations that fit the disability. The purpose of an accommodation is to allow the student with a disability to learn and be evaluated on a level playing field with other students. Accommodations do not fundamentally change the requirements or affect the integrity of the academic standard of the program. Request for specific accommodations need to match the identified need.

Types Of Accommodations

The following accommodations will be considered when supported by your recent documentation:

Extra time to write tests and exams

  • Quiet exam space
  • Use of a computer for exams
  • Note taking support
  • Text books in alternate format
  • Alternate formats including use of assistive technology (Dragon naturally speaking, JAWS, Zoom Text and Kurzweil)
  • Use of a scribe
  • Tutoring

Note: If you have experienced or observed something that you think might be discrimination or harassment, you are encouraged to contact one of the Personal Respect Advisors. Go to for more information.
