Benedictine University is dedicated to creating an accessible environment through reasonable and appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities. Students with a disability are encouraged to seek assistance by contacting Jennifer Golminas, ACE’s coordinator of Special Services. 

Special accommodation services are available for students with disabilities on a case-by-case basis provided that documentation from a properly licensed clinician supports the accommodation. Students eligible under the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) and/or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973), whose disability interferes with a major life activity, are urged to self-identify so that the process for receiving assistance can begin as soon as possible.

Commonly granted accommodations include the following:

  • Extended time for testing in a quiet test environment.
  • Designated note taker in class.
  • Modified or enlarged classroom/reading materials.
  • Books in alternate formats.
  • Preferential classroom seating.
If you are in need of special academic or housing accommodations, please contact Jennifer Golminas at (630) 829-6512 in order to begin the process of submitting proper documentation for equal access to educational and campus services. 

You can also consult the Student Accommodations Handbook for more information.
