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 college 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 to courses, course content, programs, services and facilities. 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.
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 in ways that are reasonable and do not compromise the integrity of the curriculum.
