What Are Adjustments?

Adjustments (also known as “accommodations”) are changes made to the academic programs and activities provided by the College to provide equal access to students with disabilities. Adjustments may include auxiliary aids and services, which are devices or services that enable individuals with disabilities to receive information and effectively communicate with others.

All adjustments at Purchase College, including auxiliary aids and services, must be authorized by the Office of Disability Resources and are determined through an established review process based on documentation received and a student’s narrative of his or her experience of disability, barriers, and effective and ineffective adjustments.
