Specific Accommodations Commonly Used by Students

All accommodations are specific to each student. Some of the more common accommodations include:

  • Extended time on exams, time-and-a-half or double time

  • Exams in a reduced-distraction environment

  • Note-taking

  • Alternative texts

Testing accommodations can be arranged in either an academic department or proctored in Academic Success and Accessibility; students need to schedule exams at least a week in advance.

Note takers are provided by our office. We are usually able to find a student who is willing to take notes, and their notes can be scanned and emailed. The practice is to send notes within 24 hours after the class in which they are recorded. It is also becoming more common for professors to post their class notes in Canvas.

Tutoring is not an accommodation in college, but subject and writing tutors are available at no additional cost. You can make an appointment with a peer tutor, at redlands.mywconline.com. New users will need to register for an account.  Tutoring takes place in the Academic Success Center, ground floor of Armacost library.

Abuse of Accommodations

Accommodations offered through our office are not an entitlement. Cheating or any other abuse of accommodations could result in the loss of that accommodation, and the university's disciplinary procedures will be followed.
