Davidson College values the diversity of its community and is an equal access institution that admits otherwise qualified applicants without regard to disability. The Academic Access and Disability Resources Office (AADR) works closely with the Dean of Students Office and other college offices and departments to ensure that academic courses, course content, services, programs and facilities are accessible to every student.
A student with a disability has the right to request academic and non-academic accommodations ensuring equal access. Students are not required to disclose their disability status; however, if they are seeking accommodations relative to their disability, they are responsible for making a written request to AADR and providing the appropriate documentation. Students are strongly encouraged to register and request accommodations as soon as possible. Accommodations are not retroactive and will not begin until AADR staff have issued a formal communication stating the approved accommodations.
Having a disability does not automatically qualify a student to receive accommodations. Support services are provided individually based on diagnosis, current diagnostic information and functional limitations. The college seeks to accommodate students with requests that are determined to be reasonable and do not compromise the integrity of a program or curriculum.
