Policy on Accommodations for Students with Disabilities


The Director for EEO/AA (Office of Human Resources, 315-228-7014) oversees compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Colgate seeks to provide students with disabilities with the support services and other reasonable accommodations needed to ensure equal access to the programs and activities of the University. All accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis. A student requesting accommodations is asked to provide appropriate documentation to the director of academic support and disability services.

Student requests for accommodations should be directed to the Director of Academic Support and Disability Services (Center for Learning, Teaching, and Research, 315-228-7375).
