Information on Students with Disabilities


PuzzleThe CTLE provides academic accommodations for students with documented disabilities in accordance with the ADA. These accommodations may include extended test taking time, computer use during testing, alternative test formats and readers. Students requesting test accommodations through CTLE must adhere to guidelines and access the on-line testing accommodation form to schedule examinations. Our goal in establishing these guidelines is to help the University community understand the role of the CTLE in providing academic accommodations for qualified students with disabilities.

    It is the responsibility of the student to initiate the process to receive testing accommodations by completing the student section of the Online Testing Accommodation Form. Each faculty member will receive an e-mail requesting verification of the information submitted by the student. Faculty members also need to complete the testing instructions portion of the form. The information is then submitted electronically to the CTLE staff.
