Accessible Education Services
The accommodations listed below are intended to serve as examples of supports that may be offered to eligible students. During the registration process, an OAE representative will work with you to review the request and determine what may be necessary, as it relates to the condition. Please note that in some cases, while necessary for the condition, a requested accommodation may be considered unreasonable due to a fundamental alteration of specific course or program requirements, and an alternative solution may be offered.
For more information about our registration process and eligibility, please contact a member of our team or reference our handbook.
