Academic Accommodations

POLICY REGARDING ACADEMIC ACCOMMODATIONS

The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) engages in an interactive process with each student to determine if a student qualifies as a student with a disability and to identify appropriate academic adjustments, and/or auxiliary aids and services on an individualized, case-by-case, course-by-course basis. Depending on the nature and functional limitations of a student’s documented disability, they may be eligible for academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids and services (referred to as accommodations). Accommodations are determined on a class-by-class basis and dependent upon the nature of each course and the method of instruction as it relates to the student’s documented disability. Accommodations can be requested through the Center for Students with Disabilities at www.csd.uconn.edu/request-accommodations/. Individual procedures regarding the coordination of academic accommodations, including but not limited to Note Taking Assistance, Testing Accommodations and Alternate Media can be accessed from the menu on this page
