The Office for Students with Disabilities offers a wide range of support for students needing accommodations. Common accommodations are time extensions on exams, note takers, digital recorders, assistive technology, sign language interpreters and audio format tests and textbooks. We realize that the effects of a disability may change, which is why our process involves meeting with students each and every semester to renew accommodations and ensure individualized accommodations are made.
