The Americans with Disabilities Act states that students with a documented disability have the right to request reasonable accommodations that address their specific disability. All requests for accommodation must have accompanying documentation from a licensed professional qualified to address the disability and recommended accommodations. Documentation should be sent to the ADA coordinator in Academic Support Services, located in Todd Wehr Hall. Karen Goode-Bartholomew, director of academic support services, will provide the accommodation request to the most appropriate professional in Academic Support Services, Dining Services or Health and Wellness Services who will advise the ADA coordinator.
Continuing students who need housing or dining accommodations must register their disability with the director of academic support services and comply with the procedure as outlined above before the deadline for filing a housing request. An interview with the director of academic support services to review documentation is recommended.
Residential Education and Housing needs to have the recommendation before any accommodations can be granted. Students should be aware of the housing selection timeline for housing application due dates.
