Listed below are descriptions of reasonable accommodations provided at Baldwin Wallace University. This is not an exhaustive list of reasonable accommodations. Students receive accommodations on a case-by-case basis with consideration of their documentation. It is the students responsibility to utilize the approved accommodations, meet with their professors early in the semester and follow the policies and procedures of Disability Services for Students.
College students have the right to choose whether or not to disclose their disability. If a student chooses not to disclose their disability to Disability Services for Students (DSS), then they will not receive accommodations. The University is not required to provide accommodations to students who do not follow the DSS registration process. We recommend students register in advance of the semester, as early consultation increases the likelihood that all necessary services are in place.
An accommodation is a modification that is made to a course, program, service, job, activity or facility that eliminates or minimizes disability-related barriers. For an accommodation to be deemed reasonable, it must not compromise essential requirements of a course, program, job, activity or facility not cause undue administrative or financial hardship. In addition, it must not compromise the safety of the student receiving the accommodation or of others and it must not fundamentally alter a course or program.
Accommodations are determined on an individual basis and determined based on the documentation. If adjustments need to be made, students should schedule an appointment with the Disability Services for Students at their earliest convenience.
