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 impairment related 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 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 on the first floor of the Administration building, between the President’s Office and the Writing Center. The office can be reached by phone at 610-929-6639 or by email at 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.
