41. STATEMENT ON LEARNING AND PHYSICAL DISABILITIES

Bacone College accepts students with learning and physical disabilities and provides reasonable accommodation to help them be successful. Depending on the nature of the disability, some students may need to take a lighter course load and may need more than four years to graduate. Students needing accommodation should apply as early as possible, usually the semester before they plan to attend classes. Immediately after admittance, students need to identify and document the nature of their disabilities. It is the responsibility of the student to provide the College with appropriate materials documenting the learning and/or physical disability. This documentation usually consists of a recent high school Individualized Education Program (IEP) or results from testing done by a psychologist, psychiatrist, medical doctor and/or another qualified, licensed individual. The College does not provide assessment services for students who may be learning disabled nor does the College have structured programs available for students with emotional or behavioral disabilities.
