Academic Accommodations and Modifications

Academic accommodations are modifications provided to students to provide equal access to the learning environment. DRS uses an individualized process to establish reasonable accommodations on the basis of a meeting with you and a review of all supporting information you provide.

During your initial meeting at DRS, you will discuss the impact of your disability in the learning environment and your DRS coordinator will determine appropriate reasonable accommodations. After your initial meeting, you can log on to MyDRS to send, view and print your accommodation letters.

An accommodation letter is an official document that you give to your professors so that they know how to support you in the classroom.  DRS recommends that you meet with each of your professors to discuss about your accommodations. For an example of how to handle this discussion, watch the Access TU videos.

Professors will not retroactively provide academic accommodations in situations where students did not submit their accommodation letters in a timely manner. Essential requirements of a course will not be changed for any student.

If you need a change to your accommodation letter, contact your DRS Coordinator to discuss your circumstances.
