Accommodations 

The College has an Accommodations Committee, which includes the Academic Services Coordinator, the Dean of Students, and the Associate Dean for Academic Services, supported, when necessary, by consultations with the Director of Health Services, the Director of Counseling Services, the Director of Residence Life and Housing, and the Academic Advisor. To request accommodations for a disability or a learning difference, students should contact the Academic Services Coordinator. The Academic Services Coordinator will schedule a meeting to explain the procedures for providing documentation and the process for providing reasonable and appropriate accommodation. Students who believe they have a current and essential need for disability accommodation are responsible for requesting accommodation and providing qualifying documentation to the Accommodations Committee. The Accommodations Committee will make every effort to accommodate qualified students. If a student’s request for Disability Accommodations is approved, the student must contact the Academic Services Coordinator at the start of each semester in order to notify their instructors of their accommodations.
