10.31 Policies include appropriate provisions for access to and use of facilities and equipment for those with disabilities. The provisions are published, publicly available, and consistent with relevant laws.
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires institutions to provide reasonable accommodation. The Institution policy is published in the Student Handbook:
Reasonable Accommodation Policy
Southeastern Free Will Baptist College will reasonably accommodate otherwise qualified individuals with a disability unless such accommodation would pose an undue hardship, or would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of the service, program or activity, or in undue financial or administrative burdens. Changes in teaching techniques occur continually as instructors discover new ways to aid handicapped students. The term “reasonable accommodation” is used in its general sense in this policy to apply to employees, students and visitors. Student requests for reasonable accommodation should be addressed to the College Office which will contact the appropriate Administrator.
A student must self-identify as an individual with a disability and provide appropriate diagnostic information that substantiates the disability. The College Office will then assess the impact of the disability on the student’s activities and performance and will insure that appropriate accommodations will be approved.
Individuals who have complaints alleging discriminations based upon a disability may file them with the Director of Student Life.
