Academic Accommodations

The King’s College seeks to assure equal opportunity for access to and participation in all College courses, examinations, activities, and services. This includes providing reasonable accommodations to otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities recognized under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (Title II). Section 504 and Title II protect otherwise qualified individuals from discrimination based on their disability.

Facilitated by the Office of Student Success, academic accommodations at The King’s College are offered as a practical service to support students’ thriving and success. King’s seeks to provide reasonable accommodations that support student success, and therefore offers accommodations according to a licensed doctor’s current diagnosis and recommendation. The most common accommodations requested by students include extended time on tests and access to a designated quiet space for exams. Please note that a current diagnosis and request for accommodations must be on file to ensure accommodations.

To learn more about accommodations at The King’s College refer to the Disability Services Handbook.

To register a disability, please complete the following steps:

  1. Complete the Disability Identification and Accommodation Request Form
  2. Send the Assistant Director of Student Success at King’s the email address and phone number by which he can contact your doctor or evaluator.
  3. Complete the Disability Release Form and send it to your doctor or evaluator so that he/she may release your diagnosis information to the Assistant Director of Student Success at The King’s College.

Once the three steps above are complete, the Assistant Director of Student Success will send the Certification of Disability form to the student’s doctor or evaluator. When the doctor/evaluator has completed the Certification of Disability form, accommodations will be evaluated, and the student’s professors will be contacted regarding the specific accommodations that are in place for the semester. Students will receive confirmation of the communication sent to professors via email.

Upon completion of these initial steps, students may generally renew their accommodations each semester and will be contacted by the Office of Student Success at the beginning of each semester to do so.
