POLICY STATEMENT

Priority registration allows a student with a documented disability to be granted permission to register at the beginning of the registration queue for the following reasons:

  • the time required for travel between classes regularly exceeds the ten minutes available to students, and requires careful scheduling;
  • the student requires the assistance of a personal care attendant and must arrange classes to coincide to the maximum degree possible with the availability of attendant care;
  • the student's health, or the necessity of arranging for other ongoing support services not associated with University of Minnesota Crookston (UMC), requires continuity of scheduling;
  • time for renovation or relocation of classroom space may be required to ensure access for the student when the course is scheduled to begin; and
  • other reasons as approved by the academic adviser and the Disability Resource Center coordinator.
