Academic Accommodation Process
Appropriate services and accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. Students with questions about eligibility for services are encouraged to contact Accessibility Services.
Responsibilities of the Student
- Disclose student's disability by completing the Disclosure Form.
- Provide Accessibility Services with appropriate medical, psychological, psychoeducational, or neuropsychological documentation, indicating your disability, resultant functional limitations, impact of the disability in a post-secondary environment, and any recommended accommodations.
* Submission of documentation is not the same as the request for services or accommodations.
- Schedule an intake appointment with Accessibility Services to discuss psychiatric/medical/academic history, strengths, previous modifications, and to determine reasonable accommodations. To inquire about scheduling please call (617) 989-4390.
* After meeting with Accessibility Services, it is the student's responsibility to meet with professor(s) to discuss logistics of any accommodations.
What is a Reasonable Accommodation?
- A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a course, program, service, or activity that enables a qualified student with a disability to obtain equal access.
- Equal access means an opportunity to attain the same level of performance or to enjoy equal benefits and privileges as are available to a similarly situated student without a disability.
- Essential elements of courses, programs, and activities must remain intact.
