Academic accommodations

An academic accommodation is a modification or extension of university resources, or of teaching or evaluation procedures, which is designed to accommodate the particular needs of a student with a disability without compromising academic integrity of the course, program, or assignment.

This means that a student who is given reasonable accommodation must be able to demonstrate acquisition of the body of knowledge or the skill normally required for passing a course and/or completing an academic program as determined by the academic unit subject to all university regulations.

All requests for accommodation (e.g., additional time to write a test) must be based on documented need. It is the responsibility of the individual requesting an academic accommodation to provide the necessary documentation to the Blundon Centre.

Accommodations are assessed on an individual basis. For further information refer to:
