The Office of Accessibility Resources (OAR) at Bucknell University exists to ensure access, provide support, and help the student with a disability to navigate or remove informational, physical and attitudinal barriers. Necessary accommodations are dependent on the nature of the disability, the self-report from the student with a disability, as well as the supportive documentation. The most common necessary accommodations include the following (not to an exhaustive list):
Extended time on exams
Distraction-reduced testing environment (OAR Testing Center)
Note-taking options (i.e., LiveScribe Pen, digital recording device, volunteer note-taker, etc.)
Text-to-speech reader program (Read & Write Gold)
Alternative format for texts/materials (i.e., Braille, large print, digital, etc.)
Individuals seeking accommodations must register with the OAR by self-identifying and providing documentation to support their request. Necessary accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis.
