EDUCATIONAL ACCOMMODATION SERVICES
FOR STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
The College attempts to provide reasonable educational accommodations and academic support for students with documented disabilities.
Individuals needing special accommodations must make such declaration known and provide current documentation of their special needs or disability to the Admissions Office prior to enrollment. The Admissions Office will receive the necessary documentation and submit it for consideration and review by the Educational Accommodations Committee in Academic Affairs. Once this committee has made a determination and agreed on the accommodations that the College can make available, the Admissions Office is notified.
If the student is admitted, the Dean of the Division of General Education & Special Studies (GESS) will officially notify the student, professors and/or other college personnel on a ‘need-to-know’ basis to implement the accommodations. If a student needs to apply for special educational accommodations after enrollment as a regular student, the student must contact the Dean of the GESS division and provide current documentation of his/her disability or special needs. The College will change the status of the student and will provide the accommodations agreed on by the Educational Accommodations Committee only after the determination of accommodations has been made.
