Snow College is committed to helping all students to have access to curriculum, activities, and events at Snow College. For students who may have disabilities that interfere with this goal, we are committed to working with the student to provide reasonable accommodations as required by federal, state, and local laws. Our policy is to provide accommodations whenever an individual has a disability-related need and requests accommodations. A disability-related need for a requested accommodation exists when there is an identifiable relationship between the requested accommodation and the student’s disability.
To be considered for accommodations through the Office of Disability Services, a student must:
Request accommodations with the Coordinator of Disability Services.
Have a disability that substantially limits one or more major life activities that include, but is not limited to walking, talking, seeing, hearing, or learning.
Provide current and appropriate information about the disability, when necessary.
Reasonable accommodations are defined as:
Any reasonable modification or adjustment that will allow a qualified student with a disability to access a program, service or activity or have the same rights and privileges as students without disabilities and to benefit from all educational programs and activities. Makes it possible for a qualified student with a disability to have access to the educational program and for an instructor to more fairly evaluate the student's understanding of the material. Provides access to all services, but is not a guarantee for success.
A Reasonable Accommodation Is Not:
An aid for the mastery of course content. Any accommodation would cause undue financial or administrative hardship or create a fundamental alteration to courses, facilities, or on-campus housing policies/procedures.
Services not Included under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act):
Bathing, Dressing, Personal Aides, Other Personal Care
