Students requesting reasonable accommodations should connect with Centre’s Accessibility Services, provide supporting documentation, meet with the Assistant Dean and Director of the Centre Learning Commons to discuss their needs, and share their approved accommodation plans with their instructors each semester. All accommodations are assessed on an individual basis and based on the diagnostic reports and educational recommendations of a certified professional in the field of learning disabilities. We emphasize student responsibility when using accommodations in accordance with our procedures which are designed to promote student self-advocacy and independence. The Assistant Dean and Director of the Centre Learning Commons is available for assistance, consultation, and support whenever needed.
To be eligible for approved accommodations at Centre, students must refer themselves to Accessibility Services and submit documentation to verify eligibility under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Protection under these civil rights statutes is determined on a case-by-case basis and is based upon documentation of a disability that currently substantially limits one or more major life activity, as defined under the ADA Amendments Act of 2008.
To request accommodations, contact the Assistant Dean and Director of the Centre Learning Commons
Arrangements for services, equipment, modification of course material, classroom, and other reasonable accommodations may require several weeks’ advance notice, so students requesting accommodations are encouraged to contact the Assistant Dean and Director of the CLC immediately upon acceptance to make timely provision of needed services possible.
