About the Program
While most accommodations for law and graduate students are the same as afforded to undergraduate students, there is one specific difference – Alternative and/ or Extended Time Testing. Graduate and Law students are afforded time and a half (50%) on timed exams; and law students work with the Student Affairs office and law school registrar to arrange exams. Other graduate students may work directly with their instructors to arrange exams with extended time; DSP staff can assist in this process or if other testing accommodations are needed.
Making the First Appointment
Sturm College of Law students: Your first point of contact can either be the DSP office or the law school Student Affairs office (303-871-6113) which serves as a liaison to DSP for law students who have disabilities.
Other graduate students: DSP should be your first contact to discuss accommodations, but some graduate students disclose disability and accommodations needs to their academic department upon admission. You will be directed by your advisor, instructor or department staff member to register with DSP.
