Accommodations are given for all categories of disabilities. In many cases, academic accommodations need to be requested in advance so that the professor can prepare and plan for the effective implementation of the accommodation. For continuing accommodations, the student needs to meet with the Dean to receive an approved accommodation form for the academic year.
