Services for Students with Disabilities
SUNY Delhi is committed to providing equal access for all qualified individuals to its programs and educational opportunities.
It is the college's policy to provide, on an individual basis, academic adjustments to its requirements for students who have disabilities that may affect their ability to fully participate in program or course activities or to meet course requirements as well as nonacademic program or activity requirements, including, but not limited to clubs, residence life and meal plans, and athletics. The Coordinator of Access and Equity Services is available to work with students with physical, learning, psychological, medical, or other disabilities to help them better understand the nature of their disability and develop self-advocacy skills, and to determine appropriate access plans.
To receive academic adjustments, students must identify a disability that impacts their ability to access the academic environment, provide documentation of the disability (prepared by a qualified professional), and work with the Coordinator and classroom faculty to develop and implement an appropriate plan for access. All information provided concerning a disability is confidential and is released only with the student's consent.
A person with a disability is "any person who (1) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, (2) has a history of such an impairment, or (3) is regarded as having such an impairment. Substantial impairment means that an individual cannot perform the life activity at all, or that he or she is limited in the condition, manner, or duration of the activity. Major life activities include, but are not limited to, walking, seeing, breathing, learning, working or performing manual tasks."
Academic Adjustments may include, but are not limited to:
- Special classroom seating
- Note-taking assistance
- Print materials in alternative formats
- Auxiliary aids, such as calculators, word processors, or specialized computers
- Test-taking modifications
Notice of requested adjustments must be provided to faculty members in a reasonable period of time in advance of need each semester.
