Students with Disabilities

Meredith College values the diversity of its community and works to promote the academic endeavors of all students. Therefore, Disability Services collaborates with faculty, staff, and students to create an inclusive environment in which all students have equal access to all courses, programs, events, activities, and facilities at the College.

Consistent with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Meredith College is committed to equality of educational opportunities and ensures that no otherwise qualified person shall, by reason of a disability, be denied access to, participation in, or the benefits of any program or activity offered by the College. Self-identified students who are certified through Disability Services will receive reasonable and appropriate accommodations which eliminate barriers and create equal access to all aspects of the College.

It is the student’s responsibility to disclose a disability, request accommodations, and file grievances. Individuals seeking reasonable accommodations are responsible for initiating contact with Disability Services and for providing current, comprehensive documentation to support the accommodation request.

Disability Services is responsible for establishing eligibility based on thorough documentation, student self-report and federal guidelines. Accommodations are determined on an individual, case-by-case basis. In addition to providing accommodations, Disability Services offers support services designed specifically for students with disabilities.
