Belmont Abbey College
Name of Disability Service Office: Office of Academic Assistance
Description of Services:
The Office of Academic Assistance is responsible for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and manages all student requests for special accommodations due to disabilities. Accommodations related to coursework and classroom environments are determined on a case-by-case basis. Common accommodations include extended time on tests, a distraction-reduced testing environment, and minor modifications to methods of testing. The College does not provide prescribed devices, readers for personal use or study, or any specialized academic tutoring beyond that available to all students. It is recommended that students who are non-ambulatory or whose mobility is severely restricted should visit the campus and consider the appropriateness of the physical facilities before applying to the College. The College is not responsible for providing personal care attendants.
