Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Stevenson University has no formal program for students with disabilities. However, the University, as required by the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and section 504 of the Rehabilitation in Education Act of 1973, attempts to provide reasonable classroom accommodations for students with disabilities who provide the required, formal documentation from a licensed or certified practitioner (physician, psychologist, or learning specialist). No testing for the purpose of identifying or verifying disabilities is conducted by the University. Documentation for disabilities must be submitted by the end of the first week of each semester. Requests for services must be made each semester a student is enrolled even if the student received accommodations the previous semester.

Assistance in developing time management skills, note-taking skills, and general study skills is available through the Office of Academic Support Services and in DEVR 106# to students who test into that course. The University also offers all students peer tutoring in the Academic Link.

Students may obtain a copy of the University's full policy regarding accommodations for students with disabilities (which contains information on the process to follow for submitting formal documentation of disability) by contacting the Office of Academic Support Services or consulting the Student Handbook.
