Lafayette College is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate academic accommodations to students with disabilities. Accessibility Services engages in an interactive process with each student and reviews requests for accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case basis. Our goal is to understand the impact of the disability so that an appropriate plan can be developed.
The purpose of an academic accommodation is to ensure an equal educational opportunity for qualified individuals with disabilities. Accommodations may include auxiliary aids and services, as well as modifications to academic requirements as necessary to minimize the impact of the disability.
If Accessibility Services approves academic accommodations, it is the student’s responsibility to make an official request of their accommodations by completing the Letter of Accommodation request form every semester. This process is required in order to notify the student’s current professors and access accommodations.
If you are seeking new and/or different accommodations, please contact Accessibility Services to arrange a meeting with Accessibility Services staff.
