Services to students with psychological or psychiatric disabilities

The ODS assists students with current documentation of a psychiatric disability. Students with psychiatric disabilities are entitled to accommodations that address their needs. Such accommodations might include:

  • Adjustments to the way receive lectures.
  • Adjustments to the way student takes exams.
  • Extended time to complete an exam.
  • Taking tests in a room that is free of the usual classroom distractions.

These types of accommodations allow students an equal opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of the material despite cognitive processing that may be slowed by medication or symptoms related to the condition.
