In this spirit, and in accordance with the provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and expanded by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Centre College seeks to provide disabled students with support services and other reasonable accommodations needed to ensure equal access to the programs and activities of the College.
Support services for physical disabilities of students at Centre College are coordinated by the Director of the Centre Learning Commons and the Student Life Office. Individual students are counseled to determine appropriate accommodations and identify resources and referral to the appropriate faculty member. Services for emotional or academic disabilities are coordinated by the Director of the Centre Learning Commons.
Incoming students with disabilities should register documentation of a disability. Arrangements for services, equipment, classroom or housing assignments, and other reasonable accommodations may require several weeks advance notice. Applicants indicating the need for special services are encouraged to contact the Student Life Office and the Assistant Dean immediately upon acceptance to ensure timely provision of needed services. Students must note that any accommodations are provided after this consultative process is concluded — accommodations cannot be provided retroactively, so advance notice is crucial.
