Examples Of Reasonable Accommodations
The following are examples of reasonable accommodations based on areas of study.
You may request accommodations for Excelsior University courses providing that they do not compromise the validity or content of the course. Examples of course modifications include:
- Extended time for testing and assessments (time and a half or double time)
- Provision of alternate print or presentation formats, i.e. books on tape or electronic file, scanned text, enlarged print, Braille
- To the extent possible, Excelsior University will maintain a barrier-free Web environment
- If you have hearing or speech disabilities, Excelsior provides TTY to facilitate telephone communication with Excelsior.
- The appropriate faculty will consider requests for substitution or waiver of specific degree requirements, if that substitution or waiver does not alter the academic integrity of the degree. Excelsior is not required to substitute courses or examinations considered fundamental to the academic program, but it will consider possible course or examination substitutions (if disability proves to be a barrier to fulfillment of the course or examination in question). The faculty will consider the feasibility for available alternatives and determine whether a course or examination substitution is possible without lowering academic standards or requiring substantial program alteration.
- To the extent possible, Excelsior will maintain a barrier-free Web site.
