Disabilities Services

The UWI Cave Hill Student Disability Policy promotes “an inclusive campus that enables the productive participation of all students regardless of disability” and calls for the provision of accommodations for students with disabilities. Therefore, students with disabilities may receive reasonable accommodations to enable them to participate in all aspects of campus life.

“A reasonable accommodation is a modification to the delivery of instruction and method of assessment for a course, program, facility or service that seeks to eliminate or minimizes disability-related barriers. It aims to facilitate the student’s learning experience and for the instructor to fairly evaluate the student's progress without interference from the disability.” Procedure for Implementing Accommodations for Students with Disabilities.

All students are required to meet approved standards of competency in all aspects of their work, and students with disabilities are no exception. The provision of an accommodation does not mean compromising the content, quality or level of instruction.

Students may apply for an accommodation at any time during the academic year through The Office of Student Services. The voluntary application must be initiated by the student seeking the accommodation.
