Extended time on presentations, not to exceed (25%, 50%, 75%, 100%) of the total
- The student would still be required to present in front of their classmates
or other audience members, unless the faculty member changes this requirement.
The only difference is that the student receives extra time. It is important
to remember the extended time when scheduling the presentations for the other
students. The day this student presents, there may need to be fewer students presenting.
- The student should be graded in the same manner as other students. Expectations
should not increase because of extended time. Extended time is not an advantage,
but an academic adjustment that levels the field for students with disabilities.
Out of Class Assignments
Extended time on graded out-of-class assignments (i.e.; papers, projects), not
to exceed (2 days, 5 days, 7 days).
- The student may submit the assignment up to the extended time period without
any grade penalties. If the extended due date is on a day that the University

assignment in writing from faculty member. This should be done during office hours
or after class time.
- The student should meet with the faculty member to identify what assignments
will need to be given to the student in writing. This should occur at least 10
days prior to when the student needs to have the information to begin working
on the assignment.
- The faculty member will write out the assignment.
- The faculty member and student will meet to review the written material. This
is the student’s opportunity to ask any clarifying questions. The
student will take the written material with them.
- If the student has additional questions, he/she will need to make another appointment
with the faculty member.
