To serve our mission to promote academic excellence, Washington & Jefferson College is committed to providing appropriate accommodations to students with documented disabilities and complies with applicable state and federal laws. Students with disabilities include individuals with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and mental health disorders that meet the definition of a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The College fully supports the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990). The College’s goal is to make its programs and facilities available to all students so that students with disabilities can be integrated as completely as possible into the W&J community.
W&J does not offer a specialized curriculum for persons with disabilities. Instead, the College works with the student to provide academic accommodations within the W&J curricular framework. Such academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids may involve curricular modifications only if they do not substantially alter course content or requirements essential to the academic program. W&J is committed to working in an interactive process with students with disabilities to determine appropriate accommodations that best ensure equal access to academic programs and activities. The Director of Academic Advising within the Office of Academic Affairs will assist faculty and students in identifying and providing accommodations.
