Accommodations for Testing and Learning

Course Substitution

Students qualified for course substitution are determined to:

  • be disabled
  • have reached their achievement level with appropriate accommodations and maximum effort  from the student

You may apply for course substitution through the Special Needs Coordinator if:

  1. you have made a good faith effort to complete the required course and you have utilized the accommodations recommended and approved by the Special Needs Coordinator and are unable to pass the course.

  2. you, the Special Needs Coordinator, and the Dean of Students have agreed that due to the nature and severity of your disability, beginning the required course isn't in your best interest.

Course substitutions will not be permitted if the required course is critical to the area of study and the substitution of a course would require a significant change in the essential elements of the curriculum.
