Classroom Accommodations

Our campus is dedicated to providing reasonable and appropriate accommodations to students with disabilities. Typical classroom accommodations may include priority seating, recording devices used in lectures, and receiving copies of class notes and presentations. Accommodations at Johnson University are made on a case by case basis through the Coordinator of Disability Services. A meeting (linked to requesting accommodations page) with the Coordinator of Disability Services will determine which accommodations a student qualifies for. This is a cooperative endeavor that involves the student acting as a self-advocate, notifying the Coordinator of Disability Services if he or she feels an accommodation request is not being reasonably met. Instructors are also encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Services if a question arises about how to provide accommodations. 

Testing Accommodations

Testing Accommodations are modifications to the standard testing procedures. Testing Accommodations are created to provide access to the test without changing the academic integrity of the course or the test. Examples of testing accommodations are: extended time, low distraction room, test reader, oral testing, scribe, and computer testing. 

If a student receives testing accommodations they should schedule a time to come into the Academic Support Center to take their test. Testing center hours are: Monday-Thursday 8 a.m.-3 p.m. & 6 p.m.-7 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m.-3 p.m. If you must take an exam outside of these hours please contact the
