Information on Access to Disability Services

ACADEMIC AND PROGRAM ACCOMMODATIONS

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 completed accommodate intake survey will receive an email letter from the Student Accessibility and Support Services inviting them 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.

INTAKE INTERVIEW

Students should make an appointment to meet with a Student Accessibility and Support Services advisor 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 an advisor 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.

DOCUMENTATION

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:

  1. Diagnostic interview
  2. Aptitude testing
  3. Achievement testing
  4. Information-processing testing
  5. Signature and credentials of the diagnosing professional
  6. List of standardized scores, including all subtest scores
  7. Summary, including potential impact of the disability on learning
