In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Wheaton College is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate accommodations for individuals with disabilities in order to provide equal access to programs, services and facilities for all students.
The Director of Academic and Disability Services will review documentation from a certified medical (M.D., D.O., P.A.) or mental health provider (clinical pschologist or psychiatrist) and work with the student and any related departments or individuals to determine reasonable accommodations on a case-by-case basis.
The responsibilities of postsecondary schools are significantly different from secondary schools as are the rights and responsibilities of the students.
Being informed will improve your opportunities to succeed in postsecondary education and help to eliminate misunderstandings and false expectations.
