Disability Services enables persons with disabilities to participate in activities at Clinton College and have a fully integrated experience promoted by an environment that is barrier-free.
The two legal mandates that protect students with disabilities from discrimination are:
- Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This Act states: “No otherwise qualified individual with a disability in the United States…shall, solely by reason of his or her disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
- The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. This act states: “A public entity shall make reasonable modifications in policies or procedures when the modifications are necessary to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability unless the public entity can demonstrate that making the modifications would fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program, or activity.”
Clinton College fully supports these laws and we are here to ensure students have equal access to aspects of the college experience while attending our institution. In our efforts to provide appropriate services, the Office of Disability Services works to ensure services are in compliance with the law. Our office is available to assist students and make sure both faculty and staff are providing services that are consistent with the law.
To be eligible for service, an individual must:
- Apply and be accepted for admission to Clinton College through the regular admission process
- Provide current and comprehensive documentation to support your temporary or permanent disability.
- Complete a Disability Services Student Intake Form (Contact the Office of Disability Services for this form)
Contact The Office of Disability Services with any questions or concerns.
