At the BYU-Idaho Accessibility Services Office, we coordinate with the university to create accessible educational environments for students with disabilities. You, as faculty and staff, play an essential role in this work. Since students with disabilities make up approximately 10% of the student population at BYU-Idaho, you should assume that every course has disabled students. We are committed to partnering with you in both promoting inclusive course design and implementing effective accommodations.
Appropriate accommodations are determined during an individual, interactive process between the student and an Accessibility Services administrator. Accommodations must address the student’s limitations in an academic setting. In providing accommodations, the university is not required to lower or substantially modify essential requirements for a course or program of study.
Please reach out to us if you have any questions regarding approved accommodations for a student in your course.
"The hallmark of this institution is readily apparent when visitors come to our campus and say, 'I can't believe how student-focused the faculty are, the staff are, all of the employees are.'... Here at BYU-Idaho, the students are and always will be the focus of everything we do."
Elder David A. Bednar, Brigham Young University-Idaho: A Disciple Preparation Center (DPC)
