Academic modifications are determined on a case-by-case basis and completed by program staff or the professor. Modifications change the output of the coursework to allow the student to perform to the best of their abilities. An accommodation is permitted for any UCF student with a documented disability who is registered with Student Accessibility Services. An accommodation allows for technology and resources to assist the student in the classroom.
IES staff members are located on campus during business hours. Additionally, residential mentors are available to provide residential support and assistance for newly admitted students, but please note that residential mentors are not a 24-hour support. Students are encouraged to contact campus resources (residential advisors, UCF Police Department, Knight Ride, etc.) for assistance when needed. Resource facilitators and IES staff are also available in emergency situations.
A resource facilitator is a peer mentor who facilitates student academic success and campus involvement by providing students with resources offered at UCF. In addition, resource facilitators provide the students with social, career and personal coaching while challenging them to reach their fullest potential as UCF Knights.
Students involved in the IES program pay the same tuition as every other UCF student.
