In keeping with its earliest commitment to access to all qualified students, Knox College promotes the full inclusion of students with disabilities because that inclusion adds depth and value to the educational experience for all of its students. For students with documented disabilities, it is the goal of the College to provide an environment encouraging of full participation in and equal access to its programs and services through the provision of reasonable accommodations.
Reasonable accommodations are provided within the framework of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. Examples of reasonable accommodations include extended time for the taking of examinations, the provision of note takers, access to tutors in most subjects, alterations to testing formats, and the utilization of assistive technology.
Students requesting accommodations are directed to the Office of Disability Services, whose professional staff will document the nature of the disability, determine the ways in which it impedes access to the educational experience, and coordinate an appropriate modification or adjustment to ensure access.
