What is a reasonable accommodation?

A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job or the work environment that enables an otherwise qualified applicant or employee to perform the essential functions of the job. It is the employee’s responsibility to request the accommodation and to provide requested medical documentation to the Accessibility & Accommodations Division in order to determine the most appropriate reasonable accommodations available.

How do I request a disability related accommodation?

Employees can submit a request for an accommodation due to a disability or underlying medical condition, by completing an online request form through the Office of Access and Equity’s secure portal. If you experience any difficulty or have questions about how to submit your request, please contact the Accessibility and Accommodations Division.  Please submit your request by email or by calling (217) 333-0885.

Please view the Office of Access & Equity’s Accessibility and Accommodations page for more information.
