Students with Disabilities
Grinnell College, in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), recognizes that qualified students who have diagnosed disabilities are entitled to benefit from the educational programs of the College, if reasonable accommodations can be arranged. Grinnell is committed to making reasonable accommodations for students with diagnosed or identified disabilities.
The Academic Advising Office coordinates this process, and students in need of accommodations should contact this office. Academic accommodations may include reduced course loads, extended time on exams, note takers or books in auditory format. Planning for academic accommodations is the responsibility of the student in conjunction with his or her adviser and the Dean for Student Academic Support and Advising.
For other accommodations, students may contact the Academic Advising Office to be put in touch with the College’s ADA Compliance Officer or the appropriate office such as Dining Services, Housing, or Facilities Management. Students requesting accommodations must provide the College with current, written diagnostic evaluations of their disabilities that include recommendations for appropriate accommodations.
