Reduced Courseload

Page address:

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, it may be considered reasonable accommodation for students with disabiliites to enroll in a less than full-time courseload (9-12 credits) as an academic adjustment and still be considreed full time.  Students are encouraged to discuss full-time courseload requirements with an academic advisor from their respective program.  A financial aid counselor can determine how their aid will be affected by a reduced courseload.  Finally, the student should discuss this need with staff in Accessibility Resources and if appropriate, Accessibility Resources will communicate to the Office of the Registrar a student's eligibility for reduced courseload.
