Accommodation Approval

How Reasonable Accommodations are Determined

Identifying reasonable accommodations for a student with disabilities is an interactive process between the student and the student ADA coordinator.

Services of a Personal Nature

Services of a personal nature are not considered reasonable accommodations in postsecondary education. Examples of personal services include, but are not limited to, attendant care and transportation.

Types of Reasonable Accommodations

UAFS will offer reasonable accommodations to qualified students with disabilities on a case-by-case basis. The following are examples of common reasonable accommodation requests that may be appropriate for some students. This list is not all-inclusive.

  • Exams and/or Testing - Reasonable accommodations for exams and/or testing may include extended time; reduced-distraction testing situations; alternate test formats; readers and/or scribes.
  • Class Recording - Students may be permitted to record class lectures if eligible.
  • Reading Assistance - Students may secure electronic books or large print copies.
  • Academic Classroom Aids - Where appropriate, students may be permitted to use a calculator, dictionary, word processor, spell checker, and/or grammar checker for in-class and out-of-class work upon approval.
Physical and health accommodations such as an accessible desk for students using a mobility device are also available upon approval.

Again, these are only examples. Actual accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis.
