Allen Community College is committed to assisting individuals with disabilities in achieving their educational goals with appropriate accommodations and services based on individual documented need. The Admissions Office on the Iola campus and the Student Services Office on the Burlingame campus, coordinate accommodations for Allen students who have a documented disability. Accommodations are provided at no cost to enrolled students on an individual basis and with respect for confidentiality. The College encourages independence and self-advocacy for students with disabilities.
Disabilities qualifying for services may include, but are not limited to: physical disability, health or medical disability, hearing disability, visual disability, learning disability, acquired brain injury, attention deficit disorder, mental/emotional disability, and speech disability.
To access accommodations:
The advisor will serve as an advocate for students with disabilities, sharing information pertaining to accommodations with instructors.
Types of accommodations may include, but are not limited to: notification of instructors concerning needed accommodations, use of a note taker or scribe, use of tape recorders during class, course exam accommodations (e.g., extended time in a quiet location), use of a dictionary during tests, recorded textbooks/materials, sign language interpreters, large print materials, Braille materials, library accommodations, and assistive technology.
All requests for accommodations and services will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Factors affecting the program of accommodations and services will be dependent upon disability, documented need, and the compliance requirements of Americans with Disabilities Act and section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act.
