Once you’re registered with the office, you may be provided “reasonable accommodations.” Reasonable accommodations are accommodations you receive that will "level the playing field" to provide you access to class handouts, materials, and tests making the class accessible to you as it is to other students. Accommodations for you will be determined by talking with a disability services staff member about your classes and how to best make them accessible. You may not require accommodations in every class and you will not receive every available accommodation. We encourage you to contact the DSS Office if you have questions at any time about your accommodations.
Accommodations available include, but are not limited to:
Letters to facultyEnrollment and registration assistanceNote takersLab assistantsCampus orientationLibrary/Research aidesEnlarged print for exams and handoutsAssistance with scheduling regarding classroom accessibility Assistance/advocacy regarding campus accessibility issuesRequest to tape record lecturesExtended time for exams and in-class writing assignmentsUse of word processor to complete written assignmentsOral examsScribes for examsQuiet, separate testing environmentIndividual conferences with facultySign language interpreters for academic related functionsSuggestions to faculty on working with students
And remember, when you work with DSS you do not need to worry about others finding out. Our services are confidential.
