Pepperdine University provides services and accommodations in accordance with the ADA and section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Pepperdine recognizes that each student is a unique individual and that the effect of a particular disability can vary from student to student. As a result, accommodations are determined through an interactive process with the student, the OSA, and medical/mental health professionals.
Examples of services and accommodations for qualified students include:
- Note takers
- Priority registration
- Extended time on exams and quizzes
- Distraction-reduced environments for exams and quizzes
- Alternative text (e.g. audiobooks, digital text, etc.)
- American Sign Language interpreters
- Real-time captioning
- Use of an assistive listening device
Accommodation request decisions are based on a variety of factors, including functional limitations of the disability, a particular academic course, and whether the request would alter the fundamental nature of the course and/or course objectives. Any questions about accommodations should be addressed in an intake conversation between one of the directors of Student Accessibility and the student. Email the office with further questions.
