Requesting Accommodations

Academic accommodations are determined on an individual basis and may vary based on course design. A student needs to request academic accommodations each semester. The accommodations can be identified through an interactive process between student, staff of the Ross Center, and the course instructor.

To request accommodations, a student must initially complete a Student Application on myRCDS, and participate in a registration meeting with a Coordinator.  Once the registration is complete, the student can go online to myRCDS and select accommodations for each course.

For a student who is taking an online course and is not able to come to the campus for a meeting, the student can schedule a phone meeting with a Coordinator.

A letter will be sent to every instructor which identifies the accommodations for that course.

The following accommodation requests require a student to schedule an additional meeting with a Coordinator:

  • Extensions on assignments
  • Flexible attendance
  • Course substitution
  • Classroom furniture.
