All students must be qualified to participate in any program of academic study with or without reasonable accommodations. Students with disabilities are, therefore, not excused from course prerequisites, GPA requirements, or degree requirements. In some limited circumstances it may be appropriate for a substitution of a peripheral academic requirement, such as a course. Such accommodations are made only when it is clear the student's disability makes completion of the requirement impossible and that such an accommodation does not alter the integrity of the academic program.
Course substitution is done on a case-by-case. Evidence of a disabling condition affecting the skills needed for the required course must be provided to Disability Services and the Admissions and Academic Status Committee. Course adaptation or accommodation must be considered before a substitution is granted.
