Accommodations and Services

A "reasonable and appropriate accommodation" is a modification, adjustment, and/or auxiliary aid that minimizes or eliminates the impact of a disability, allowing the student to gain equal access and opportunity to participate in the University's courses, programs, services, activities, and facilities.

A "reasonable and appropriate accommodation" is one that does not:

  • require a substantial change or alteration in the curriculum to an essential element of a course or program;
  • fundamentally alter the nature of the service provided;
  • pose an undue financial hardship or administrative burden; and/or
  • pose a direct threat to the health and safety of others.
