The purpose of the assignment extension accommodation is to provide reasonable flexibility for students with disabilities if episodic and acute disability symptoms interfere with the ability to meet a course assignment deadline.
Students may need to seek course substitutions on the basis of a documented disability that inhibits the ability to learn certain subjects.
The LAAP accommodation is determined based on a review of appropriate documentation from a qualified medical or mental health professional and through an interactive process with the student.
Students with certain functional limitations may qualify for a reduced course load, which allows the opportunity to enroll in fewer courses than required. Students must submit an application and documentation to start the eligibility process.
