Students with Disabilities

Hendrix College is committed to ensuring "reasonable accommodation," in keeping with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992, to all students who inform the College that they are qualified as individuals with a disability. In order to accomplish this, members of the Student Affairs staff will work with each student on an individual basis.

It is the responsibility of any student with a disability to identify himself or herself and to provide appropriate documentation of the disability to the Director of Counseling Services. The student should discuss the types of accommodations needed with the Director of Counseling Services and relevant faculty members. Because of the complexities of disabilities, "reasonable accommodation" will be determined on an individual basis by the counselor in consultation with the student and faculty and/or staff member. To provide adequate services, the Director of Counseling Services reserves the right to review the diagnosis that has been provided and to require that a new or updated diagnosis be made.

For complete information, students should consult the Policy and Procedures in the Students With Disabilities pamphlet that may be obtained from the office of the Director of Counseling Services, the Dean of Students, the Coordinator of Academic Support Services, or the Registrar.
