A reasonable accommodation is any modification or adjustment that will enable a qualified student with a disability to participate in a course, program, activity, or service. Reasonable accommodations assure that students with a disability have rights, privileges, and access equal to students without disabilities.
Reasonable accommodations may include academic adjustments, auxiliary aids or adaptive technology, outreach services, or physical access modifications.
Arrange academic accommodations
Academic accommodations are modifications or adjustments that ensure that students with disabilities have equal access to course instruction, materials, and evaluation. The accommodations must be reasonable and cannot alter the essential requirements of a course. Examples of reasonable accommodations include extended time on exams, testing in quiet settings, permission to record lectures, or using your laptop to take notes.
If you’re an Indiana University Bloomington student with a documented disability, the Office of Disability Services for Students (DSS) can help you arrange academic accommodations for your courses and communicate the accommodations to your instructors.
