Distance Learning Courses and Accessibility
According to the Policies and Procedural Guidelines for Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Disability (Revised July 2012), UH Hilo handles requests for accommodations by students with disabilities enrolled in distance education programs on a case-by-case basis". Such action is taken due to the individual nature of each student with disability's academic accommodation needs and the varying level of disability impact.
The University is committed to the supports needed to ensure a student with disability's equal access to the array of the University's program, services and activities. If you are needing a disability related accommodation for an on-line course that you are enrolled in, please contact the Disability Services Office. For general information about supports for all students taking Distance Learning courses, please go to the Distance Learning at UH Hilo website.
