Academic Adjustment Evaluation Committee



This committee's duties are described in the Academic Adjustments/Auxiliary Aids Policy. It is charged with conducting individualized evaluations of students' files and approving requests for appropriate academic accomodations/auxiliary aids.


This committee is appointed by the Provost, who also designates the Chair of the committee. The committee is composed of four faculty members (one from each academic college) and the Director of Disability Services as an ex-officio (non-voting) member. At least two of the committee members will have professional expertise in relevant areas, e.g., ADAA, Rehabilitation Act, learning disorders, sensory disorders, special education, etc. The committee will meet prior to the start of each semester and within the first week of each semester to review and approve each student's file ensuring requests are approved in a timely manner. After the initial semester meetings, the commitee will continue to meet on a regularly scheduled basis to evaluate student requests and make recommendations.
