For Accessing Accommodations
Students with disabilities who need accommodations and services must follow these procedures:

admission to Saint Joseph's College to receive the guidelines
for documentation of a disability. The Manager explains to the
student the College's policies and procedures regarding accommodations.
- The student provides current documentation according to the
written guidelines regarding the disability. Documentation should
indicate that the impairment is a disability that substantially limits a
major life activity. School plans such as an Individualized Education
Program (IEP) or a 504 Plan are useful but do
not provide sufficient documentation to establish the rationale
for accommodations. All files and information are confidential.
Procedures for Accessing Accommodations
- Based on the nature of the disability and according to the
documentation, reasonable accommodations are determined by the ADA
Accommodations Manager. Determination of accommodations is provided
to the student in writing.
- The student has the responsibility to inform and provide his/her faculty of any agreed upon accommodation(s) in writing.
