Accessible Education Services

The Office of Accessible Education Services works with Program faculty to provide accommodations for learning and assessment activities. Students are responsible for requesting services and are strongly encouraged to contact the Office of Accessible Education Services prior to matriculation and as soon as possible after a condition that may qualify for accommodations arises.

The LMU-Harrogate PA Program will attempt, to the best of its ability, to develop mechanisms by which otherwise qualified candidates for admission and continuing students can be accommodated; however, the integrity of the curriculum and the need to provide optimal patient care must be maintained in order to ensure that all parts of the LMU-Harrogate PA Program are delivered to all students. The affiliate organizations, such as outpatient clinics and hospital systems, that administer the clinical and practical portion of the LMU-Harrogate PA Program curriculum expect students to perform their duties in a timely manner as such ability is a critical and essential part of patient care. Therefore, extra time will not be granted to students in clinical scenarios including clinical rotations and the clinical performance examinations. Similarly, the use of trained intermediaries will generally not be approved in clinical situations. The determination regarding whether to grant an accommodation will be based on individual circumstances. Policies on requesting accommodations for a disability can be found at
