Students who may benefit from ATRC services include, but are not limited to, those having difficulty with tasks such as:

  • Reading regular sized text
  • Comprehending reading materials
  • Seeing the computer monitor or keyboard
  • Producing written work
  • Physically using a standard keyboard or mouse
  • Taking multiple choice, essay or short answer exams

Primary recipients of services are those students with an identified disability as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Secondary recipients of assistive technology services include those students with a temporary disability or those students with or at risk for injury due to computing. Services will then be provided as time, resources, and equipment are available.

Continuing Education Students*

For continuing education students, the entity initiating the course is responsible for any "reasonable accommodations". If a CSU instructor initiates the course then CSU is responsible for the accommodation. If the course is initiated by a community member, that individual or the site associated with that instructor become responsible for providing the accommodation.
