Classroom Accommodations

Students may seek classroom accommodations through the DSS Office. Possible alternative testing accommodations include but are not limited to:

  • Priority seating either in the front of the class or near a door
  • Permission to audio record lectures
  • Note-taking services
  • The use of a laptop computer

If a student is approved for accommodations and chooses to use their accommodations in their classes, the faculty will receive the Faculty Notification email that outlines their academic accommodations.

Students who receive audio recording as an accommodation are asked to sign an agreement with the DSS Office. This agreement prohibits the student from transferring data to websites or other public forums and makes clear that any recordings taken in class are solely for the personal use of the DSS student. To view a sample of the Audio Recording Agreement, please contact the DSS Office.
