Procedures for Requesting Academic Accommodations on the Basis of Disability
Students with appropriately documented disabilities who are enrolled in Boston University courses or programs may be eligible for reasonable accommodations. Students visiting from other institutions should contact the Office of Disability Services to discuss arranging for accommodations.
Information for Evaluators of Students with Disabilities
Students seeking accommodations must provide appropriate medical documentation of their disability so that Disability Services can determine the student’s eligibility for accommodations; and if the student is eligible, determine appropriate academic accommodations.
