Services to Students with Disabilities
In keeping with the St. Norbert College mission to help students develop their full potential, and in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the College provides supportive services to students with disabilities. Students become eligible for services when they provide recent documentation of a disability to Academic Support Services.
Documentation must include:
A written, clearly stated diagnosis by an appropriate licensed professional
The names and scores of psychological and psychoeducational instruments used in arriving at the diagnosis
All appropriate and necessary academic, access and other accommodations
The coordinator of Services to Students with Disabilities, Karen Goode-Bartholomew, determines student eligibility for specific accommodations and works with the students, faculty and College officials to ensure that the needs of students with disabilities are met.
Students with disabilities are encouraged to meet with the coordinator early in the admissions process. This meeting will assist the student in recognizing the differences between disability services at the high school and college levels. An early disclosure date is essential for students using taped textbooks, interpretative services and to ensure that the student’s transition to college is a positive experience.
Accommodations are available for placement testing during the summer orientation program. Documentation must be on file before the date of the orientation session.
Students that have the testing accommodation need to make appointments for their exams with the Academic Support Service office: Testing Appointment Form
