Academic Accommodations and Faculty Responsibility
Academic accommodations are modifications, adjustments, auxiliary aids, and/or services that give a student with a disability equal access to participate in and benefit from all programs, services, and academic opportunities of the University of Cincinnati. Visit the Academic Accommodations and Faculty Responsibility page to learn about specific accommodations and how to fulfill them for your students.
Student Accommodation Form
The Accommodation Form is the document that we use to communicate the approved accommodations that students should receive in your class. We recommend reading about the Accommodation Form Purpose and Explanation.
A common accommodation that students receive is extra time and/or a distraction reduced environment for taking tests and quizzes. Profsesors may choose to deliver these accommodations themselves, or, use the Accommodated Testing Process provided through Testing Services to provide testing accomodations to students with disabilities. Information on that process can be found on the Testing Services website.
