Once students are registered with Student Disability Services by completing an Intake Meeting, students can benefit from other supports services provided by our office.
Students who are granted an exemption from the FAHSS Foreign Language Requirement due to a documented disability, will without exception have to fulfill an alternative requirement. Students should work with the Office of Disability Services in order to be granted the Language Substitution option.
Please consult the Foreign Language Substitution page in the UMass Lowell online Academic Catalog for more information.
The Language Substitution requires 12 credits (4 courses) in one of the clusters listed below. Substitute courses will not be accepted unless approved by the FAHSS Dean's Office. Students may only fulfill the Language Substitution by taking courses from ONE cluster. Students must notify our office in writing with the cluster they choose to fulfill this requirement. Please email your choice to: Disability@uml.edu.
