The goal of the Disability Service Office is to assist students with an identified disability in attaining academic success by ensuring that no individual with a disability is excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in college programs or activities due to his or her disability. The student is a vital source of information regarding how he or she may be “limited” by their specific disability. Ensuring that “accommodations” provide effective access requires a collaborative process that is responsive to the unique experience of each individual.
St. Francis College’s process and criteria for determining accommodations may differ from other institutions (such as the guidelines for the GRE, MCAT, LSAT, etc.). Please research the supporting documentation required for any outside program or institution so that you can properly prepare.
The Disability Service Office works collaboratively with the Academic Enhancement Center (AEC) to facilitate testing accommodations for students with an identified disability. All exams requiring additional time or a reduced distraction environment must be scheduled by a faculty member through the Academic Enhancement Center.
