What are Academic Accommodations?
Academic accommodation as required by law is not meant to diminish academic standards. It is intended to create an opportunity for students with disabilities to learn and for professors to evaluate fairly. Students with disabilities expect access and opportunities, not alterations in academic expectations. Academic requirements and course objectives should remain unchanged. Modifications may need to be made in the way a student receives information or demonstrates knowledge but not in the academic proficiency standards.
In accordance with the Immaculata University’s policies and procedures, the University's non-discrimination policy, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 as amended, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Immaculata University prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability and provides reasonable accommodations to eligible staff, faculty, and students unless doing so will impose an undue hardship on the University.
Although it is the duty of the University to provide reasonable accommodations, it is the responsibility of the person with the need to request a reasonable accommodation in a realistic time frame. Please email AcademicSuccess@Immaculata.edu or call 484-323-3876 for more information regarding accommodations for the College of Undergraduate Studies (CUS).
Students and families with a documented disability should review the Immaculata University Handbook University Handbook for Academic Accommodations.
