Information on Access to Disability Services
Academic accommodations are individually determined and designed to provide equal access to programs and services for students with disabilities. Accommodation requests cannot alter the essential requirements of a course or program. Accommodations must be requested in a timely manner. Interpreters, captioning, or books on tape must be ordered at least three weeks in advance. A minimum of five days' notice is required for any requested accommodation.
SELF - IDENTIFICATION
Students must register with Student Accessibility and Support Services (SASS) to receive services. First-year students who submit the disability self-disclosure form will receive a letter from the coordinator of Student Accessibility and Support Services inviting you to submit documentation and set up an appointment to discuss support services at Kenyon. Students are not eligible for accommodations until appropriate documentation has been submitted and reviewed with SASS.
Students should make an appointment to meet with the coordinator of Student Accessibility and Support Services during the first two weeks of the semester. If an interpreter or captioned media is needed, please notify SASS upon acceptance to the College. The students and the coordinator of Student Accessibility and Support Services will review documentation and determine appropriate accommodations during this initial meeting. Accommodation requests are reviewed at the beginning of each semester.
It is the student's responsibility to provide documentation, to Student Support and Accessibility Services, according to the guidelines listed below. Testing must be comprehensive and current (within the past three to five years). Documentation of learning disabilities should include the following:
- Diagnostic interview
- Aptitude testing
- Achievement testing
- Information-processing testing
- Signature and credentials of the diagnosing professional
- List of standardized scores, including all subtest scores
- Summary, including potential impact of the disability on learning
Documentation should be received by June 1, 2019. It can be loaded directly in to Accommodate using the upload feature below.
Inquiries regarding documentation or services can be directed to the coordinator of Student Accessibility and Support Services by calling 740-427-5453 or by visiting www.kenyon.edu/disabilityservices. During the month of July, inquiries should be directed to the Office of Academic Advising and Support at 740-427-5145.
If the student does not have documentation at the initial interview, interim services may be provided if the student has received accommodations at the K-12 level or if the student has received services at another post-secondary institution.
