Accommodations for Field Experiences

Some students benefit from arranging accommodations with their internship, field experience, or clinical site. Students planning to start internships, field experiences, or off-site clinical rotations should begin the accommodation process as early as possible, preferably a semester ahead of the start of the field experience.

  1. Contact Disability Services Office to discuss the situation
  2. Review the Responsibilities document
  3. Complete the Field Experience Accessibility Plan
