Eastern Gateway Community College is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations may include extended time allowances for testing and required projects, interpreters, approved assistance equipment, and/or 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 time. 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 should make arrangements to speak or meet with the Director of Student Accessibility Services. 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 submitted to the director and kept on file. Students who are interested should contact the director at [email protected].
