Academic Accommodation

Students with disabilities may arrange for academic accommodations at Western. An academic accommodation is an alteration in the usual conditions under which students perform academic tasks. These conditions may be changed through accommodation if the changes do not remove an essential course or program requirement. For a more detailed explanation, please see the website of Services for Students with Disabilities.

Students with disabilities may request academic accommodations through Services for Students with Disabilities.
