Accommodations and Services

Accommodations are reasonable adjustments to the classroom and campus that help ensure you have equal access to your education at Winthrop. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis considering the limitations caused by the disability as documented by a qualified health services provider. Based on your documentation, you may be eligible for a variety of accommodations, including but not limited to:

  • Accessible Desks and Tables
  • Assistive Technology
  • Braille and Large Print
  • Notetakers
  • Priority Registration 
  • Professor Notification of Accommodations 
  • Residence Hall Accommodations 
  • Sign-Language Interpreting
  • Study Skills
  • Test-Taking Accommodations
  • Textbooks in Alternative Media

Independence is the primary goal in providing services for students with disabilities, and students are encouraged to use services as a support to accomplish their academic goals. Students should be aware that while accommodations are intended to remove barriers to learning, they do not ensure success.
