Students With Disabilities

Accommodations

Florida College offers various accommodations to all students who qualify as specific-needs (SN) students.

Accommodations are adjustments to a student’s academic routine specifically intended to offset physical differences or other circumstances that limit substantively that student’s ability to succeed academically.

Examples of accommodations are:

  • Extra time on exams
  • Taking exams in a quiet location
  • Recording Lectures
  • Printed lecture notes or note-takers (scribes)
  • Designated parking areas

The granting and management of student accommodations are the responsibility of the Florida College Advising Office (AO).  The College’s legal obligation is to provide reasonable accommodations as defined by applicable federal and states laws.  It is the College’s responsibility to determine to the best of its ability what accommodations are indeed reasonable.
