Presently, Lesley University procedures for accommodations reflect best practices across the nation. Lesley University procedures require that students requesting accommodations be documented.

Students are advised to begin to assess the kinds of accommodations they may require for each course and to speak with their faculty within the first three weeks of class. The faculty member and student determine arrangements which are reasonable and which meet academic standards.Some testing accommodations, such as extended time or a distraction-free environment, may necessitate the use of space other than the regular classroom. Because space on campus is limited, faculty and students are advised to make arrangements for alternative space well ahead of time. Space within the Center for Academic Achievement may be available, but faculty members may also book space through the Registrar's Office.
ADA does not mandate which kinds of alternative test conditions to offer. However, a number of models have been shown to be effective.
