Accommodations Policy

Randolph College is committed to the full participation of individuals with disabilities as defined under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 as amended. Policies and procedures will ensure that persons with disabilities will not be denied, based on that disability, full and equal access to academic and other programs or activities offered by the College.

Randolph College provides reasonable accommodations at no cost for eligible students with disabilities. An accommodation is a legally mandated modification or service that gives a student with a disability an equal opportunity to benefit from the educational process and typically include the following:

  • Changes to a classroom environment or task that permit a student with a disability to participate in the educational process
  • Removal of architectural barriers
  • Modifications to policies, practices or procedures
  • Provision of auxiliary aids and services
  • Other adaptations or modifications that enable a student to enjoy the benefits and privileges of the college‚Äôs program, services and activities.

Students with disabilities are eligible to receive reasonable and necessary accommodations based upon an interactive interview with the Coordinator of Access Services and a careful review of disability related documentation.

The Coordinator of Access Services works with students with disabilities under the supervision of the Associate Provost. These individuals are charged by the institutional administration with the responsibility of assuring that Randolph College takes all necessary steps to meet both educational and legal mandates for access.

While Randolph College strives to accommodate students as fully as possible, reasonable academic adjustments or accommodations do not include measures which fundamentally alter the academic programs or which place an undue financial burden on the College.
