Accommodations and Services
Students receiving services must have a documented disability as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and by the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008.
Students are responsible for supplying current and sufficient documentation of the condition. Documentation is reviewed by the Center’s professional staff and is utilized in determining appropriate accommodations for individual students.
The Center for Disability Services uses Accommodate to manage the needs of its students and accommodation requests. This system provides students the ability to coordinate support, manage communications, and be proactive. The use of Accommodate has increased functionality to serve students and increases accountability for all stakeholders.
Students with disabilities are encouraged to provide reasonable notification to instructors for exam accommodations. If CDS proctors the exam, it is the student’s responsibility to contact CDS at least five days prior to an exam. CDS will not proctor make-up or retake exams during final exam week. Further, it is the student’s responsibility to notify CDS of any changes or cancellations in the test schedule using their Accommodate Portal.
