The most commonly requested accommodations are listed below.   The list is not all-inclusive, as accommodations are always individually determined and based on individual needs.

  • Extended test-taking time
  • Peer note-takers
  • Readers for tests
  • Electronic textbooks – Electronic books require additional time for ordering.  For this reason, it is most important for professors to adopt textbooks well in advance of the beginning of the semester and (if possible) include the title, author, and ISBN number in the course description in the catalog.  Students are required to purchase books before they can receive electronic editions through the DRC because of copyright restrictions.  Once they provide documentation of the purchase, the DRC can order the electronic editions at no additional cost through AccessText.
