Accommodations

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.
