Accommodations for equal access
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973, all students, with or without disabilities, are entitled to equal access to the programs and activities of LIM College.
If a student believes that they have a disabling condition that may interfere with their ability to access and/or participate in the activities, coursework, testing and assessment, or other requirements of a course, they may be entitled to non-retroactive accommodations.
The accessibility services staff within Student Affairs offers academic and non-academic accommodations for a qualified student with a disability. Some examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to: extended time on tests, testing in an alternate location, copies of class notes, access to specialized computer software , books in alternate formats, and accommodations in College-affiliated housing. A student will not be able to receive accommodations for a disability at LIM College unless they choose to disclose this information to the accessibility services staff and formally register for services. A student with a disability is encouraged to contact the accessibility services staff as soon as possible upon enrolling at LIM College.
Please find more detailed information regarding LIM College’s policies and procedures relative to accessibility services in the Accessibility Services Handbook.
