OAAS: Academic Success

Prospective Students

Services for Students with Disabilities

Hendrix College endeavors to create an atmosphere in which diversity and individual rights of each member of the college community are respected.  Students with disabilities have met the same rigorous admission standards as all other students.  Some enter college aware of their problems and needs, while others discover them as they become engaged in the academic and social activities of college life.

Hendrix College is committed to providing “reasonable accommodation,” in keeping with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992.  Students requesting accommodations should contact Julie Brown, Director- Academic Success, at 505.2954 or brownj@hendrix.edu to make an appointment and begin the review process.

Fast Facts for New Hendrix Students

  •  The College is staffed by a nurse and two counselors Monday through Friday, 8:30 to 5.  There are no on-campus health services available after 5 or on weekends.
  •  Neither College staff nor Hendrix students can serve as on-going, de facto primary health support for other students, including transportation to health services.

 In order for professors to meet learning objectives for their courses, long-term absences are not considered a ‘reasonable accommodation’ and in most circumstances cannot be supported by the College.
