An accommodation is any change to a classroom environment or task that permits a qualified student with a disability to participate in the classroom process, to perform the essential tasks of the class, or to enjoy benefits and privileges of classroom participation equal to those enjoyed by students without disabilities. An accommodation is a legally mandated change that creates an equitable opportunity for task completion or environmental access. There are many types of accommodations that FTC students may qualify to receive. Please review our Learner Rights and Responsibilities form for more information.
