Reasonable and appropriate accommodations are provided to students registered with Student Disability Services.  These may include extended test time in a distraction –reduced environment, use of a digital voice recorder for classroom lectures, use of alternative media, volunteer notetakers, use of JAWS software, ASL interpreters, or CART reporting for lectures.  Wayne State University also provides accommodations to students for university functions such as campus tours and orientation.
