Academic Accommodations

Accommodated Testing Process

STEP 1

Fill out a pre-registration form on the Disability Resource Center (DRC) website.

STEP 2

DRC Learning Specialist Lisa Diekow will connect with you to set up an initial meeting to discuss and select appropriate academic accommodations. You will then receive an Accommodation Letter from DRC outlining your accommodation(s). You can meet with Lisa any time after your initial meeting to adjust or request additional accommodations.

Step 3

If you would like to utilize your accommodation(s), email the letter to Dr. Patty Probert, Assistant Dean of Student Advocacy & Inclusion. Dr. Probert will notify the following:

  • The Office of Academic Affairs who will create your accommodated exam schedule. Your accommodated exam schedule will be emailed to you at the beginning of each semester. The Office of Academic Affairs will coordinate the accommodated testing schedule with the course director.
  • Tyler Brown in the Office of Student Advocacy & Inclusion who will connect with you each semester to review your current academic accommodation(s).

Communicating With Professors

In order to receive academic accommodations, students are responsible for submitting a current accommodation letter to the professor in each course. This should be an interactive conversation between the student and the instructor about the course requirements and the specific accommodation that the student anticipates utilizing in that course.
