To receive classroom accommodations, students must self-identify and provide current documentation of their disability to the Office of Disability Services. If a student suspects they may have a disability, they are encouraged to contact our office.
Accommodations are available at Nicholls to ensure that students with disabilities have equal access.
Accommodations are identified on a case-by-case basis. The following are examples of accommodations:
- Preferential seating
- Use of a tape recorder in class
- Extended time for tests and in-class essays
- Transfer answers to Scantron
- Reader and/or writer for tests
- Electronic textbooks
- Assistive technology
- Volunteer Notetakers
After documentation is provided to the Office of Disability Services:
- The student meets with the director to discuss accommodations, and together they form a plan for that semester.
- The office will type a letter to instructors that identifies the student’s registration with our office and classroom accommodations needed.
