What kind of accommodations does Brandman University offer for students with disabilities?
Each student is assessed on an individual basis. Accommodations are customized, depending on each student's needs.
How can a student receive accommodations?
The student should submit documentation of a disability. All accommodations are determined by the Office of Accessible Education. If a student has questions about what type of documentation to submit, they can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Does Brandman University offer assessments or testing to diagnose learning disabilities, ADHD, or other disorders?
The university does not provide assessments. Please email email@example.com to request a list of referrals for evaluations.
If a student had accommodations in high school, will they continue to have the same accommodations and services at Brandman?
It is possible to have some or similar accommodations, but it is not guaranteed. K-12 accommodations were provided under the legislative act, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). In higher education, disability accommodations are provided under Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA)/Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act of 2008 (ADAA). Existing legislation provides equal access to education for students with disabilities. Accommodations help to compensate for limiting functions of a disability. This allows the student with a disability to compete equally among his or her peers. Learn more.
