Students whose native language* is not English are not universally eligible for special testing accommodations and presently professors have no legal obligation to offer English as a Second Language (ESL) alternative testing arrangements.
However, many ESL students find that in certain circumstances extra time helps them demonstrate the true depth of their content knowledge and understanding. The issue is language constraints, including:
- Translating in two languages
- Colloquial wording on tests
Students who would like to start the ESL permission process can schedule an appointment with Mrs. Joy Krispin, ESL Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 847-628-1546.
