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. Impairment-related academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, and services are offered 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 individual assessment of student needs and promotes self-advocacy and intentional learning among students with disabilities. The department endeavors to foster independent learning by students with disabilities through a strengths-based approach and by providing faculty with consultation and resources. Impairment-related accommodations are provided to students with disabilities, while maintaining the academic standards of the college. Students, including prospective students, are encouraged to use their strengths and develop a growth mindset to nourish their commitment to lifetime learning.
Students who are interested in requesting accommodations should request an accommodation packet or contact the office via phone or email.
