As the provision of academic accommodations can be complex given the range of possible instructional/exam formats, providing accommodations is best accomplished through a collaboration between the instructor, the student, and an Access & Diversity Advisor.
Last update: May 4, 2016 by Vicky Tran The University is committed to providing access for students with disabilities while maintaining academic standards.Other students may find themselves devoid of energy or ineffective for certain parts of each day due to fatigue, pain, or powerful medication side effects.This policy describes the roles of various units and individuals at the University of California, Berkeley in ensuring that students with disabilities receive appropriate accommodations in their instructional activities, as mandated by Federal and State law and by University policy. University of California policies are presented in the University of California Guidelines Applying to Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Handicap, which appear as Section 140 of the University's Policies Applying to Campus Activities, Organizations, and Students. Academic requirements that are justifiably essential to a student's program of instruction are not considered discriminatory. The University must make sure that its academic requirements do not discriminate or have the effect of discriminating against persons with disabilities.
