Students requesting accommodations based on specific disabilities should meet with the appropriate contact person early in the semester or term. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (A.D.A.), any student who presents appropriate documentation of a physical, learning or emotional disability in accordance with University policy will be provided with reasonable accommodations designed to meet his or her needs.
Students on the Rindge campus should make an appointment with the Coordinator for Student Accessibility Services in the Center for Academic Excellence. Students at a College of Graduate and Professional Studies campus should meet with their Center Director, or can contact the Coordinator for Student Accessibility Services directly for assistance.
Before academic accommodations can be offered, it is the responsibility of the student to submit the necessary test documents, such as a psycho-educational assessment, individualized IQ test, achievement test or signed diagnosis statement of an MD or licensed psychologist, depending on the disability. See specific testing documentation requirements. These tests must have been given within the last three years and should contain a summary of results and recommendations. During an initial review by the Coordinator of Student Accessibility Services, a student’s eligibility for services is determined.
