Eastern Gateway Community College is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities within the classroom. Reasonable accommodations may include alternative methods of testing and/or showing mastery of required material, modification of time allowances for testing and/or required projects, note takers, interpreters, and/or approved assistance equipment, access to lecture notes and materials such as overhead slides. Effective and reasonable accommodation in the classroom does not include fundamental alteration of the curriculum, classroom standards, or length of class. Accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis by the College.
Students are responsible for notifying the College regarding any disabilities for which they may need special services. Students need to make arrangements to meet with the Director of Student Support Services and Student Section 504 Coordinator in the Student Success Center at the Jefferson Campus. The Director will assist students in resolving immediate issues, provide assistance with academic concerns, and attempt to answer student questions. Pertinent documentation from a medical professional, psychiatrist, or psychologist must be provided to the Director of Student Support Services. Students in need of disability services may contact Vanessa Birney at (740) 266-9771 or email@example.com . Ms. Birney’s office is located in Office 1509 at the Jefferson County Campus, 4000 Sunset Boulevard, Steubenville, Ohio 43952.
