What does reasonable accommodation mean?

A reasonable accommodation is an adjustment designed to mitigate the impact of a student’s disability without compromising the integrity of an academic course or program.  Reasonable accommodations may include:

  • assistive technology
  • auxiliary aids such as sign language interpreters
  • test-taking accommodations to complete exams
  • alternate media

Providing reasonable accommodations allows students with disabilities to have equal access to education and services at the University.  Students with disabilities are required to meet the same academic and technical standards as their non-disabled peers, using reasonable accommodations.
