Students with Disabilities
For students with disabilities, leaving high school to enter college brings brings changes in regard to educational rights and responsibilities, according to the law. Unlike high school, disclosure of disabilities is the responsibility of the student. In other words, you must let us know about a disability in order to receive reasonable accommodations or support services. Such disabilities include, but are not limited to, physical disabilities, visual or hearing impairments, learning disabilities, Asperger's, and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
Students requesting accommodations or other support services are required to submit documentation to verify eligibility for protection under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
