Reduced Course Load Policy


Policy Statement                                                                      

The Student Access Office (SAO) engages in an interactive process with each student and reviews requests for accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case basis. Depending on the nature and functional limitations of a student’s documented disability, he/she may be eligible to take less than a full time course load, as governed by this policy. Each student request is determined on an individualized, semester-by-semester basis; appropriate, supporting documentation must be submitted as part of the Petition process.

Reason for Policy                                                                    

Unlike part-time status, a reduced course load will allow a qualifying student to register for a course load that is less than full-time, and still receive a pro-rated Adelphi scholarship and/or grant.


Who Is Governed by this Policy
