Disability Services: Information for Students with Disabilities
Albright College ensures that people with disabilities have equal opportunity to participate in its programs and activities, in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) and encourages qualified students to request reasonable accommodations for which they qualify. Albright College offers academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and services for qualified students through the Disability Services Office, which handles all requests for academic accommodations and makes referrals to other college units as needed. The Director of Disability Services, Yuriko Beaman, is committed to providing timely, individual assessment of student needs and promotes self-advocacy and intentional learning among students with disabilities. The Disability Services Office is located in the Selwyn Building, phone 610-929-6639, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Students who are interested in requesting academic accommodations should complete the Accommodation Request Form and contact Yuriko Beaman to request the Accommodation Packet.
Students can learn more about the ADAAA and regulations for students with disabilities in higher education via the Transition Guide from the Department of Education. http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/transitionguide.html.
