How to Register
Steps to Requesting and Receiving Reasonable Accommodations
There are four steps involved in requesting and receiving accommodations at Baldwin Wallace. The process outlined below is to assist students with documented disabilities in requesting reasonable accommodations at BW. Our requirements are in accordance with federal laws for post-secondary institutions and the Association for Higher Education and Disabilities, (AHEAD).
Steps to Register
After you have completed your admission to BW:
- Self-disclose to Disability Specialist, Erin Kelley (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Director of Disability Services, Alsace Toure (email@example.com).
- Provide current documentation of your disability and the disability related need for any specific accommodation(s) being requested. Current documentation is necessary for verification purposes and to determine reasonable accommodations. The cost of the documentation is the responsibility of the student. Please note: Submission of documentation should not be considered approval of the requested accommodations. Please use the documentation guidelines and our verification forms to assist you in that process.
- Complete an application for Disability Services.
- Schedule an intake appointment to discuss the impact, nature and functional limitations of your disability; determine eligibility for reasonable accommodations; and discuss process, policies and procedures. Appropriate accommodations are recommended on a case-by-case basis by DSS.
