In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the College strives to ensure that "no otherwise qualified individual with a disability shall, solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program administered by the college."
Students with a documented disability should register with the Director of Disability Services and must provide documentation. Documentation must date no more than three years prior to matriculation. Students should consult the Director of Disability Services at 914-323-7127 on acceptable documentation. All documentation is confidential.
At the beginning of each semester, a student who is registered with the Office of Disability Services should request in writing from the Director the accommodations that he/she needs to be successful in coursework. The Director provides each of the students'professors a letter outlining the appropriate accommodations. It is the students' responsibility to make arrangements with the professor each time the accommodation is to be provided (e.g. before each test).
