We’re here to support you! HFCDHP strives to ensure students with permanent and temporary disabilities have equal access to all university programs and activities.

HFCDHP provides accommodations as mandated under the ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Since each disability and the circumstances surrounding each request for accommodations are unique, it is impossible to predict which accommodations will be provided to any given student. The following is a list of potential accommodations, which may be granted based on the student’s disability and how it impacts them in a post-graduate environment. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of potential accommodations. Modifications and accommodations for qualified students with disabilities may include:

  • Extended time for exams
  • Distraction-reduced test taking environment for exams
  • Scribe for exams
  • Reader for exams
  • Computer for exams
  • Large print/Braille exams
  • Interpreter for classes
  • Note taker for classes
  • Alternative text (e-text and/or CD)
  • Alternative course materials
  • Adaptive equipment
  • Removal of architectural barriers
  • Special furniture
  • Modifications or substitutions of courses in major fields of study or degree requirements*

NOTE: Such decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. Such accommodation need not be made if the institution can demonstrate that the changes requested would substantially alter essential elements of the course or program or dilute its academic standards.
