Academic requirements may be modified, as necessary, to ensure that they do not discriminate against qualified applicants or currently enrolled student with disabilities. However, academic requirements that are essential to programs of instruction (i.e., specific prerequisite courses, attendance requirements) are not considered discriminatory and cannot be waived. These modifications, coordinated through the Office of Student Disability Services, shall neither affect the substance of the educational program nor compromise educational methods.
The following listing, although not exhaustive, represents the services and accommodations that are more commonly provided to “eligible” students with disabilities. Eligibility is determined by Student Disability Services on a case-by-case basis:
