Do deaf students receive accommodations for activities outside of class?

Deaf students can request accommodations for other activities or events, including but not limited to:

  • Tutoring
  • Group projects
  • Internships
  • Study abroad
  • Virtual events
  • Student organizations

NDC’s Equitable Access Guide, Section 5: “Beyond the Classroom: Non-Academic Programs” points out institutions are responsible for providing accommodations for institution-sponsored events, on or off campus. Events or activities that are part of a course but occur outside of class time will also need to be accommodated. Institutions should have a clear request process in place for non-academic and academic-related requests.
