Overview of Accommodations

The accommodations listed below are intended to serve as examples of accommodations--more detail can be found in the OAE Handbook. 

During the registration process, an OAE team member will work with you to review your documentation and your accommodations requests and determine reasonable accommodations. Please note that in some cases, a requested accommodation may be considered unreasonable because the accommodation poses a fundamental alteration of specific course or program requirement, and in some cases, an alternate accommodation may be offered.
