An Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment or the hiring process for a qualified individual with a disability. An accommodation is reasonable so long as it does not pose an undue hardship for the employer in terms of significant difficulty or expense to implement.
NIU strives to engage those who request a reasonable accommodation in an interactive process to support increased work performance, equitable application processes and positive visits to campus. Read the NIU policy on employment and accommodations under the ADA.
Please contact the Disability Resource Center for more information.

Please note: If you're an employee or applicant, you can request reasonable accommodations regardless of your employment classification or status (permanent, extra help, etc.).
