Most accommodations requested for test taking and classroom are basic adjustments that can be provided in the classroom or provided by the Learning Support Center. Students should make use of their faculty members past experience and knowledge of their course requirements to determine how to plan their accommodations.
Obtaining textbooks in electronic format has become easier in recent years. Students with print disabilities are encouraged to obtain course materials from online sources such as textbook publishers, online textbook rental companies and other free sources such as Bookshare. Students requesting accessible technologies such as access to reading and writing programs should contact the LSC staff.
Temporary medical conditions do not meet the criteria for disability accommodations due to the duration (generally 6 months or less) of symptoms or functional limitations. However, the staff of the LSC and the faculty of Albion College will work with students to make appropriate adjustments or modifications.
Students with disabilities often find the learning support programs of LSC helpful to them in reaching their academic goals. We have listed three such programs that are particularly popular with our students.
Application forms are available for students who wish to obtain a single room or live off campus as an accommodation for their disability. Students who feel that ongoing contact with a counselor will be helpful are encouraged to contact the Albion College Counseling Center. Students with chronic health conditions that require ongoing medical attention should contact student Health Services.
