What kinds of accommodations are available through SAS?
Student access plans are determined in an individualized manner for each student who connects with Student Accessibility Services (SAS) based on the nature of the disability and the academic environment. The disability does not equate to a specific set of accommodations. SAS staff and the student will engage in an interactive process to clarify student barriers to access and identify the appropriate reasonable accommodations. While the student does not have to be able to specify the precise accommodations they need in their Accessibility Accommodation Request, they do need to identify and describe the problems posed by the academic barrier. Reasonable accommodations provide equal access to educational programs and activities and not an unfair advantage.
The following accommodations are commonly requested by students through SAS:
- Access to Food, Water, Medicine, and Medical Supplies
- Alternate Format Textbooks
- Audio Recording Lectures
- Preferential Seating
- Sign Language Interpreting
