Supporting Students with a Disability

Instructions for UCD staff on how to view the list of students requiring supports

Information on the academic and exam supports required by individual students with a disability are available on Infohub Classlists. All module co-ordinators have access to this information.

Follow these steps to view the report:

The number of students with a disability will appear in the “Students with Disability” column. Click on the digit to see the list of students with a disability and their classroom and exam accommodations.

 

Students with a disability may use their exam supports for any timed exams. For official end of semester exams this support is arranged by UCD Assessment; however, for locally arranged exams supports must be organised by the module coordiantor. Students are instructed to request their supports as far in advance as possible to allow time for module coordiantors to organise these.
