Ancilla College is committed to ensuring equal educational access and opportunities to qualified students with documented disabilities who wish to receive accommodations. The College is responsible for assuring that programs and facilities are accessible; the Student Success Center staff assists the College in carrying out this goal.
If a student has a disability and wishes to receive accommodations, formal documentation from the appropriate professional care provider about the disability, the functional limitation it imposes, and recommendations for accommodations must be provided. All the information students provide is voluntary and will be kept strictly confidential.
Academic accommodations and support services are determined on an individual basis. Each accommodation is based on functional limitations as identified in the documentation and is designed to meet a student’s needs without fundamentally altering the nature of the student’s instructional program(s). The ADA Coordinator is located in Student Success Center.
Two elevators are located in the main building of the Ministry Center. A handicapped entrance is available at the north end of the science and technology wing.
