Accommodations

Texas A&M School of Law Exam Accommodations

Students who have a disability may request reasonable accommodations for their exams (professors’ classroom policies) by submitting an Exam Accommodation Request Form to the Office of Student Affairs. 

To receive accommodations for a disability, the student must submit documentation to the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.  Advance notice of the need for an accommodation helps to ensure there is adequate time to review the request and determine each request on a case-by-case basis.  Therefore, students should submit requests by September 15th for the Fall semester, by February 15th ​for the Spring semester, and at registration for summer and winter sessions.

Federal law requires that reasonable accommodations be made to meet the needs of students with disabilities in order to provide equal educational access and avoid discrimination. In providing a reasonable accommodation, the University does not have to eliminate or lower essential requirements, make modifications that would result in a fundamental alteration of programs or activities or impose an undue burden on the institution.

If you have further questions, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at 817.212.4111.

Texas A&M School of Law Temporary Exam Accommodations

The Office of Student Affairs recognizes that individuals with temporarily disabling conditions that are a result of injuries, surgery or short-term medical conditions may need access to services and resources similar to individuals with permanent disabilities. Examples of temporary disabilities may include, but are not limited to: broken limbs, hand injuries, or short term impairments following surgery or medical treatments.

To receive reasonable accommodations for a temporary disability, the student must submit documentation to the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs indicating the type of disability, severity, limitations, prognosis, and estimated duration of the disabling condition.  It is also helpful to know any adverse side effects caused by medication and recommendations for accommodations.  The documentation should be recent enough to identify current limitations. Additional documentation may be requested to verify the need for continued services after the estimated duration of the condition has expired.

Documents may be submitted in person or faxed to 817.212.3891.  If you have further questions, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at 817.212.​4111.
