Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
Please Note: Updated information for the Class of 2024 will be available in early June. Customs Week begins Wednesday, August 26, 2020. However, we encourage students and families to wait to make travel arrangements until mid-June as some students will have earlier move-in dates due to participation in Pre-Customs programs or pre-season athletics.
Please read the following information carefully and connect with Access and Disability Services if you need academic, housing, and/or dining accommodations.
Reasonable accommodations give students equal access to all campus programs, events, and services. ADS works collaboratively with each student applying for accommodations to determine eligibility, and to identify the accommodations that are necessary and helpful to the student without altering the fundamental nature of the academic program. Please read this information thoroughly and contact Sherrie Borowsky at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with any questions.
If you believe you will need housing accommodations (including air conditioning and/or carpet-free) for the 2019-2020 academic year, please fill out a Housing Accommodation Request Form and submit supporting documentation to ADS by the June 21, 2019 deadline. This form, documentation guidelines and instructions for their submission, and other information can be found on the Housing Accommodations page of the ADS website.
If you are requesting housing accommodations due to an allergy or asthma condition you MUST print out and have your health care professional fill out the Verification of Disability Form for Housing Accommodation for Asthma and Allergy Conditions. For these conditions, a physical letter from your physician or healthcare provider is not accepted.
