If you need special accommodations due to a disability, we can help. You're an expert on your own disability. While the college challenges students with disabilities to accept the freedom and responsibility of directing their own lives, we also believe that all students deserve the opportunity to succeed to the best of their abilities. The Coordinator of Disability Services can help students with disabilities exercise more control over their own education, increase their independence and self-determination and complete degree requirements.
The Office of Student Success offers assistance in setting up accommodations that allow students to fully participate in academic pursuits at Wells College. It is up to students to make their own decisions and to initiate actions that ultimately lead to success and enable them to contribute to, as well as share responsibility in, the Wells College community.
Please click here for documentation guidelines. The Coordinator of Disability Services will contact you to set up an appointment to discuss reasonable accommodations.

In the context of higher education, it is easier to define what is not reasonable and assume that if the accommodation needed does not clearly fall under those guidelines, it is probably reasonable! There are three kinds of accommodations that are not considered reasonable: (1) It is not a reasonable accommodation if making the accommodation or allowing participation poses a direct threat to the health or safety of others; (2) It is not a reasonable accommodation if making the accommodation means making a substantial change in an essential element of the curriculum (educational viewpoint) or a substantial alteration in the manner in which you provide your services; and (3) It is not a reasonable accommodation if it poses an undue financial or administrative burden.
