Accommodations are decided upon based on review of each individual situation and documentation. Below is a list of the
most common reasonable accommodations for the classroom.
The Office of Disability Services recommends that students with a disability-related need for flexibility in attendance meet with their instructors to discuss the extent to which
modification in attendance policies may be reasonable for a particular class. Disability Services is available to consult with faculty on issues concerning disability and attendance.
No accommodation exists that allows a student to miss class simply because of their disability. Class attendance is considered an essential element of the course unless otherwise
noted in the course syllabus.
No. Students must follow the HSU attendance policy which is outlined in the catalog. A statement concerning absences may be added to a letter of accommodation to explain
circumstances to instructors, but excused absences are at the department's discretion.
