Disability Services: Accommodations

Reasonable Accommodations

A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a course, program, service, activity or facility. It is designed to offer a qualified student with a disability reasonable access to the same opportunities, benefits, and privileges available to a similarly situated student without a disability.

The accommodation is not required if it would fundamentally alter the nature of the course, program, service, or facility, or if it would result in an undue burden for the institution. To determine reasonable accommodations, the College will seek information from appropriate personnel regarding essential standards for courses, programs, services, activities, and facilities.
