Services for Students with Disabilities

In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Manor College does not discriminate against an otherwise qualified individual based on a physical or mental disability. Manor College will make reasonable academic adjustments that do not change or diminish the outcomes, measures, standards, or grading policies of a course or program.

To be eligible for appropriate accommodations the student must present to the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs, current documentation, prepared by an appropriate professional, which establishes a disability as defined by the ADA. The Assistant Dean will review the materials and discuss proposed accommodations with the student. A signed copy of the agreed upon accommodations will be given to the student and to involved faculty. A copy will be retained in the Assistant Dean’s office, Room 33 in the Library Building. Disability related information is confidential and will not be shared without the student’s written consent.

Requesting accommodations is the responsibility of the student. Accommodations are in effect for one semester. Students who want continued accommodations must first register for classes for the semester in question and then meet with the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs to discuss accommodations appropriate to the classes shown on the student schedule.

Accommodations may include, but are not limited to: extended time for testing, testing in a distraction-free environment, note taker, recording lectures, and/or academic support through the Learning Center. Due to the individualized nature of accommodations, academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and/or services are determined on an individual and
course-by-course basis.
