Reasonable Accommodations

Reasonable accommodations are services, strategies, and adjustments for equalization and parity. Implementation of accommodations is based on documentation. Students with multiple disabilities must provide multiple documentation if reasonable accommodations are necessary for more than one disability. For example, a student with visual and learning differences may be eligible for note-takers in classrooms and extended testing time/calculators/scribes.

Reasonable accommodations for classroom-related activities are also reflective of documentation. The 504 officer and Student Support counselors are responsible to ensure comprehensive access outside of Student Support in classrooms and throughout the campus. Libraries should have computer stations for students with mobility disabilities, college-wide computer systems should make adaptive technology available for students with visual/mobility and other disabilities. Student Life retreats should also consider the needs of The Center for Student Accessibility.
