Academic Support & Resources
Disability Support Services
In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Amendments Act of 2008 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Disability Support Services assists students with mobility, psychological, learning, hearing, visual, and medical disabilities in fulfilling the fundamental requirements of the curriculum by accessing reasonable accommodations that maximize their educational opportunities at the College
Students wishing to request accommodations should meet with the Associate Director (Boston) Assistant Dean for Academic Support Services (Worcester) or a member of the Academic Support Services staff (Manchester) at the beginning of each semester to review documentation and discuss accommodations appropriate to their coursework. The College requires that a copy of a recent assessment by an appropriate service provider be on file in the office of Disability Support Services/Academic Support Services. The assessment should include a statement regarding the functional limitations of the disability as well as recommendations for accommodations.
All interactions related to disabilities support services are confidential and may not be released to anyone outside of the Disabilities Services Office and the Academic Resource Center unless a student has given written authorization to disclose information.
