Foreign Language Accommodation

Learning Disability Accommodations for the Foreign Language Requirement

Upon the recommendation of Services for Students with Disabilities, the College of Liberal Arts provides accommodations for students with diagnosed disabilities that impede foreign language learning. The foreign language requirement is never waived.

The College provides three sequential levels of accommodation: classroom accommodations, an alternate foreign language consistent with the accommodations, or eighteen hours of approved culture and literature coursework. All accommodations are determined on an individual basis in conjunction with the Foreign Language Accommodation Assessment Coordinator.

The Foreign Language Accommodation Assessment Coordinator may also determine that no accommodation is required and deny the request.

For more information, please schedule an appointment with Megan Conner, Senior Academic Advisor, at 512-471-4271.
