Students with a documented disability may be eligible for accommodations. The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) is responsible for determining reasonable accommodation based on the individual’s current functional limitations. Only students who have been issued an Authorization for Accommodation (AFA) by the OSD are eligible for accommodation. The Division of Biological Sciences OSD Liaison will work directly with the student to facilitate all exam accommodations for undergraduate courses offered by the Division.
Students seeking accommodation in any undergraduate course offered by the Division of Biological Sciences must follow the steps below. Students are responsible for registering promptly with the OSD. In order to ensure that accommodations are met, students MUST follow the procedures of both the OSD and the Division of Biological Sciences.
Students must meet with the Biological Sciences OSD Liaison to review the AFA and the specific exam accommodations. Please allow up to 30 minutes for this meeting.
All communication regarding exam accommodation will be sent via the student’s @ucsd.edu email account. It is the student’s responsibility to read and respond (if necessary) to email correspondence in a timely manner. Failure to read or respond may result in the forfeit of accommodation.
Students seeking classroom accommodation in any undergraduate course offered by the Division of Biological Sciences should work directly with their course instructor. Students are responsible for communicating with their instructor about their specific needs as dictated by the AFA.
