Allen College

Academic Accommodations

Federal law requires that the College provide reasonable accommodations for otherwise qualified students with disabilities. Generally, the term “disability” means that an individual has a mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities. Reasonable academic accommodations may include, but are not limited to, adjusting class schedules, providing assistive devices or equipment, providing readers or interpreters, giving additional time to complete a task, and modifying examinations or other assignments.

If you are interested in seeking academic accommodations, please see the Academic Accommodations for Students with Disabilities policy.

If you wish to have special accommodations for your licensure or certification exam, you may need to show that you received those accommodations while you were completing your course work. Such proof is required for the NCLEX-RN; for your specific certification/licensure, check with the issuing organization for requirements.
