What is an Accommodation?
An accommodation is a modification that is made to a course, program, service, job, activity, or facility that eliminates or minimizes disability-related barriers to allow for equal access.
There is often more than one way to accommodate a situation or activity. In order for an accommodation to be considered reasonable, however, it must meet four criteria:
- It must not compromise the objectives of a course, program, job, activity, or facility.
- It must not cause an undue administrative or financial hardship.
- It must not compromise safety to you or others.
- It must not fundamentally alter a course or program.
It is important to note that accommodations from elementary and secondary education can often be different from what is considered reasonable at the post-secondary level. Accommodations are determined by the Director and Assistant Director of Disability Resources on an individual, case-by-case basis.
