Process for Requesting Accommodations for Studies/Examinations 



Requests for study/exam accommodations must be made no later than

  1. November 29, 2019, for the first semester
  2. March 20, 2020, for the second semester.

Requests for accommodations must be renewed each year; however, some requests may be validated for a full degree cycle.


Steps to Follow

  • Step one: Contact EM Strasbourg’s Disability Advisor.
  • Step two: Make an appointment with the University’s Disability Services (Service de la vie universitaire - Mission handicap) where they will examine your request, evaluate your needs, in collaboration with the disability advisors and the heads of degree, and set up a support plan (PAEH).

If you have benefited from accommodations in your previous studies, such as a PEP (Personalized Education Project) or PSP (Personalized Support Plan), please bring the documents specifying the measures established.

  • Step three: Make an appointment with the SSU (University Health Center) or the CAMUS (the University of Strasbourg’s Medical and Psychological Consultation Center) for a visit with a licensed physician.

Please bring the medical documents regarding your situation. For students with a dys-type disability, a speech and language assessment dating from less than a year ago, at the time of entering the University, must be brought along. The University’s Disability Services has a list of professionals and a recommendation sheet regarding assessment criteria that can be sent to you.
